glad we came to see this great museum. So much to see. So well organized. Could have spent more time, even though we were there for 6 hours. Will be coming back again.

After having just visited the Basketball Hall of Fame in Springfield, MA a few months ago, it was interesting to compare the difference. I loved all of the really old artifacts from the dawn of baseball. I also enjoyed the Babe Ruth section. I found it very interesting and informative. I think there is something for whichever team you root... More

My husband retired in early May, and this was my gift to him. This was our first ever visit to the Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum, and it did not disappoint in any way. There is so much to see, and so many photos to shoot. The museum does a beautiful job of telling the history of Major League... More

It's a well organized museum that includes exhibits highlighting the Negro League, Latin player contributions, women in baseball, as well as familiar major league exhibits.

Loved the old uniforms and memorabilia. They even showed "Who's on First". Great for anyone who has even the least bit of interest in baseball.

We came to the Hall of Fame as part of my husband's 66th birthday road trip. He was a player in his youth, a coach in his middle years and still a fan – I am less knowledgeable but very interested in and moved by the history and stars of the game. The museum is absolutely amazing with exhibits for... More

Visiting in May before the crowds come starting Memorial Day is fantastic. Worth the long drive! We had the place to ourselves and took our time. Great exhibits although a little more in the way of interactive exhibits would be nice, especially for younger kids.

We took our annual visit to Cooperstown recently. We love the area and always enjoy the Baseball Hall of Fame. They have some remodeling going on and we look forward to returning to see how they finish it. The new Babe Ruth exhibit is really outstanding. Our only issue is that the movie in the theatre really needs to be... More

What can you say? A baseball lover's dream. Honestly - it's perfect. It has everything. The facility is very well maintained and the staff was very friendly. A must see! And Cooperstown is a beautiful little town.
