Highly recommended! Interactive exhibits display tell the stories behind the great game of baseball. Only 25% of the museum's artifacts are on display at one time so you're bound to see something new if you come back year after year.

A visit to the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum is a required pilgrimage for all fans of the game of baseball. There are so many exhibits and attractions to see that you should reserve several hours to see it all. Bring a camera and extra batteries. Expect crowds.

This is the ultimate destination for any baseball fan or lover of the game. Hospitality at it's finest. This is home to every Baseball artifact that is worth having. The whole museum is first class all the way. This is a "don't miss" location. The whole town is about Baseball.

This is a necessary trip for any baseball fan. So much to learn about the game, its history, plus its present and future. Very much worth the visit!

Have been wanting to go here since I was a young boy watching my Phillies. Was well worth the drive and I have been back multiple times. Its a time capsule for baseball lovers and just casual fans as the displays are ever changing and informative. One can wander around in here for hours on end and not see everything.

Definitely a trip for all baseball fans, or anybody that wants to feel good about being an American. When you drive into town, it is like driving into a Norman Rockwell painting. The Hall of Fame surprisingly, id the old Cooperstown High School, right in the middle of their main street. an amazing amount of baseball memorabilia, and historic items.... More

We came at the end of December and it was the perfect time. We got free street parking because of the holidays and there were not many people in the museum. We came after 3pm so that we could get in the next day for free. I recommend this if you aren't getting a season pass. There is a lot... More

We've visited this remarkable museum three times, and not once does the great hall of hero's not bring tears to our eyes. People who visit for the first time are surprised that the physical building is so grand and elegant, situated on the main street, and surrounded by beautiful grounds. The museum is laid out beautifully, with a jaw dropping... More

I went with my teenage son for an off season visit. We almost had the place to ourselves and it was great. We spent hours looking at the memorabilia and exhibits with no time constraints. It was well worth the long drive to get there!

I've been here once years ago. I wanted to show my kids. Parking was easy(especially since we came in the winter). Greeted promptly and was given the veterans discount when I asked for it(even though I didn't have proof of it). This was a walk down memory lane. We were given a list of questions to answer. Like a scavenger... More
