If you are a true baseball fan, spend plenty of time looking at all the individual displays. If you love all the records, you are in heaven. If you want to see the displays for each team, here they are. If you want the history of baseball--- watch KenBurn's series. The drive here in October in the fall colors is... More

There was so much to take in at the Baseball Hall of Fame. Plan a lot of time! So many "interesting, big and small facts and information". Cool place to visit for everyone.

I thought this was going to be more about the actual history of baseball as opposed to more stats-based, so I was a little disappointed. Definitely worth seeing if you are really into stats, but if you want a general history of the sport, this isn't the place.

Although it was a great visit. I was very disappointed with the fact that they did not have any Royals shirts just hats and wall hangings. Hello they are in the world series and for you nay sayers no I am not a bandwagon fan I was born and raised a Royals fan and my husband as well. It was... More

What an amazing experience! If you love baseball, this is your place. If not, it is still a history buff's paradise as baseball chronicles life in America for the past 150 years. We were on overload from the vast amount of history and information in the museum and the great players remembered in the Hall itself. We were at our... More

This was a cool trip. I went with my family. My grandpa has always wanted to go so we took him and he had a great time. They also allow free rentals of wheel chairs. That made his experience much more enjoyable. It has everything for anyone! Great baseball muesum! Best to go during winter (off season)! Parking is impossible!!

Cool museum. And the town of Cooperstown is cute. Lots of restaurants and, of course, places to buy souvenirs.

As a lifetime baseball fn, I couldn't help but get goosebumps looking at the plaques and the memorabilia and reading the stories, both newand from the early years of the game. Don't miss the movie. Parking can beachallenge, but other than that.... Can take pictures every location except movieand gift shop. Gift shop prices were... More

If you are a diehard baseball fan, this is the place to go. If you have a baseball fan in the family, be prepared to spend several HOURS there. I enjoyed going to the baseball hall of fame even though I am "not" a diehard baseball fan. There was something there for me to keep my interest while my dad... More
