Easter Sunday is a great day to visit The Hall. No crowds at all. This is a great museum. If you live baseball, you will love the artifacts and information on all the game's great players. If you're not, you can see some of America's history through the lens of its national pasttime. Our family had people from 8 to... More

We honestly went to Cooperstown to do the Beverage Trail. But when in Rome.... Very clean with a friendly staff. It made me wish I followed baseball more. Even as non-fans we spent 1 1/2 hours there. Don't miss the "Who's on first" tape.

Don't let the outside fool you -- it may look small, but there's plenty to see! Plan to take five hours for a complete tour of this amazing museum. Three levels of unbelievable memorabilia, amazing facts and knowledgeable staff. Constant updates of the museum 10,000+ artifacts will make you want to keep coming back. If you've brought kids, make sure... More

I had very low expectations in going through the museum…my husband had been before and he thought I would really like it. As it turned out, I found it to be very interesting in so many ways. From the team uniforms and name changes through the years, to the improvements in equipment… to the little details about the men and... More

Very interesting place, with lots to see. See the film (about 13 min) when you first go in. It is very good.

We took the time to swing through Cooperstown on an East Coast spring break trip. The whole family found themselves loving the museum. Very well done, with great depth in the exhibits. The range of the museum kept kept everyone in our party engaged throughout. Well worth the detour from the interstate.
