A Baseball Nuts Disney World! Need I say more? Loved that we could leave and go for lunch and then come back if we wanted to. So much to see :)

Small town with a lot of baseball history. If you are into baseball memorabilia and the history of baseball this is the place to go

Delightful museum for diehard baseball fans and even those with limited interest. Well done exhibits, plan to spend several hours to see it all. Must see if you are in Cooperstown.

Loved every minute of this museum. And that's what it is...a museum of baseball. If you're not interested in the history of baseball, you probably will be bored or done with the tour in an hour. we were there all day. I suggest you DVR or rent Ken Burn's Baseball series and watch before you visit Cooperstown. As in any... More

Just about everyone knows what it means to say a player will "make it to Cooperstown." The little village in central New York state is synonymous with the Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum or, as fans refer to it, "the Hall." This shrine to baseball and everything the game means underwent major renovation and expansion during the 1990s and... More

We held a car tour--1929-1954-early 6-cylinder Chevys-in Sept of 2014. We took 60 cars, 132 people, and 1 dog to Cooperstown to see the National Baseball Hall of Fame. We parked on the street and showed off our cars. While the townspeople were admiring our cars, we were enjoying the baseball museum. Every great in baseball from the beginning to... More

We had the place pretty much to ourselves on a snowy February day. That suited me just fine and I relished visiting the greats of baseball at my own pace and in a peaceful space. I like that the Hall isn't all flashing lights and noisy displays. It simply shows you the history of baseball, its great participants and its... More

The place is an institution. When thinking about the various exhibits, there isn't one thing which is a stand out attraction, just a lot of history all presented in a user-friendly way. It helps if you're a baseball fan but even if not there is a sense of nostalgia and a great warmth in the stories that leaves you feeling... More

Great for the family! You can take your time walking through the Hall. So much baseball history, the old timers, the teams, the owners, the fans, and of course the Hall of Fame itself. Even if you are not a big baseball fan, finding your favorite Hall of Famers plaque on the wall is great. We are White Sox fans,... More

I wish I was a huge baseball fan! I don't feel like I appreciated it like how it's suppose to be appreciated! I'm glad I went, but probably won't go again! I did most definitely enjoy all the ladies baseball stuff! I grew up watching a league of their own, so that stuff was amazing! I feel as far as... More
