Play Ball!

Was on my bucket list for years. Finally made the pilgrimage. I wish it was closer so I could visit again and again and again.

A terrific museum for the baseball enthusiasts! If you will be in the town for more than a day, may wish to consider a membership. The family membership was only a few dollars more than the cost of admission for my family, so we bought that and split our visit to the museum over a couple of days.

The museum is very well done with interesting artifacts and historical details, all beautifully displayed. The story of baseball is wonderfully told through stories, photos, audio and great baseball memorability. The Hall of Fame is simply beautiful.

Love Baseball. A Must See. A good portion of the day will be spent here. I was impressed with the childrens area. The grounds and statues are beautiful. Very worth the trip and stay in Cooperstown, NY. People from all over the world come here.

We returned to the HOF after dinner (8pm) and had an hour to leisurely see the exhibits. It was awesome to have the place almost to ourselves.

The museum is really well done. It has so many really special and cool items that gives one the sense of not only baseball history but U.S. history as well. I really enjoyed my visit.

I admit at first I was not overjoyed about going here. I'm not a baseball fan but my boyfriend is and we try to accommodate each other when we vacation. I must say I was pleasantly surprised. The museum is beautiful and has many exhibits that appeal to anyone, fan or not. My friend was captivated by all the players'... More

The Hall of Fame and the Museum were both truly interesting. Although I am not a baseball fan the museum was interesting, well organized and highly informative. My grandsons and husband all enjoyed the wide range of exhibits, videos, & memorabilia. Obviously there is great pride taken in this museum by those who work here. We parked on the street... More

The place is full of history. If you are a baseball fan, plan on spending at least half a day walking through the museum and viewing the exhibits. A casual or non-baseball fan can move through much quicker. If you are pressed for time, head straight for the Hall of Fame Gallery to view the plaques of the Hall of... More

I am on the cusp as to whether this attraction is great or just okay. No question I enjoyed it but I guess I was expecting to see more. What is there is unique and a "must see" for a true baseball fan. But as someone who has followed "my team" for the past 50+ years, I found that there... More
