If you love baseball and have the time and patience to go through all the baseball memorabilia, then you will truly enjoy it. I felt there was a lot to see but consolidated in the display cases. There were a lot of facts to embrace also. In summary, I did have a nice time.

We visited for HOF weekend. I really thought the HOF would have more artifacts. A lot of it was same stuff, different players. Still very neat though. Highlight was definitely the baseball clinic on friday night. my kid loved it and we will likely return again just for that.

Cooperstown built it and baseball fans flok to this qorsranding museum. The exhibits are regularly changed. The new wing offered far more to see.

This is American Nostalgia at it's finest. If you are a baseball fan and grew up with the game, this is a must visit place on your bucket list. Walking through the exhibits and the halls instantly turned me into a 10 year old boy again that was being awed by my heroes. If you are anywhere within a 4-5... More

This is the fifth time visiting Cooperstown and the hall of fame. First visit was for the hall, keep coming back because we love the town. The hall of fame brings back childhood memories for a kid born in the 1950's. Some of the displays change but the feel does not. Give yourself a very minimum of three hours. Stay... More

The museum was amazing. We spent the entire day and were never bored. The staff was very friendly, knowledgable and always willing to answer questions. i've been a baseball fan all my life but I learned so much. This is a must see for any baseball fan and Cooperstown is such an amazing town.

Hall of Fame was awesome! Loved the vintage stuff. Kids were engaged. Classic game was great, but thought that the players should have acknowledged the fans a little better. We spent ,$40 on a Hall of Fame ball and walked away with no signatures. My daughter was crushed when players walked right by and got on the bus :(

Very will done but unless you are a real baseball buff or are traveling with kids, you will just view and move on.

glad we came to see this great museum. So much to see. So well organized. Could have spent more time, even though we were there for 6 hours. Will be coming back again.
