Winter has to be the best time to visit, we had the place almost entirely to ourselves and spent several hours wandering from floor to floor to really take in the displays.

Went with my husband and son for a one day visit. Expected to be bored but there were enough hands on exhibits to hold my interest. We were there for about four hours and it was quite fun.

Great way to spend a late Fall weekend. America's pastime, Ameircan history. Great times. Suggest you make a weekend out of it and enjoy the town as well.

I am not necessarily a baseball fan but thoroughly enjoyed the museum. I learned a great deal and enjoyed all it had to offer. Besides, Cooperstown and are is well worth the visit. You will not be disappointed.
