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.

A wonderful visit - even for those who are not real baseball fans. The museum is well organized with interesting displays - you'll find your favorite team well represented and the history of the game is fascinating to learn about.

All baseball fans should make it a point in their lives to visit the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum. I did 40 years ago and have made the trip annually ever since. One day is not enough to read and view all the exhibits. The museum chronologically displays the growth of the sport as well as features on... More

The Baseball Hall of Fame is worth a visit for all baseball fans. And I think the surrounding area is nice enough that non-fans will be able to enjoy themselves while you're inside. You can go thru it in one day, but I heartily recommend taking two (although you'll probably have to pay two admission fees). Cooperstown Village and the... More

I had visited the Hall of Fame once before...before I had kids. We had a great time. Not that the Hall is just for kids, it just made it that much better. The area of the building doesn't seem that big but it's you just can't believe all the "stuff" they have there. If you are a baseball fan this... More

I've always wanted to visit Cooperstown. A wonderful trip down nostalgia lane. I was impressed how they kept things current, as well as having great items there from the past. I relived many moments of my childhood, as well as reveled in the recent success of my beloved Red Sox. My favorite was the plaques of each member who has... More

This is our second Cooperstown trip, 15 years apart, and the Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum (HoF) has kept up with the times. From the opening media presentation to the three floors of baseball "stuff," this is made for baseball fans and kids. There is still relatively little interactive material, but the graphics and artifacts are one-of-a-kind, from (for... More

The Baseball Hall of Fame offers a captivating snapshot of our history through the eyes of America's greatest pastime. From politics, to racism, to fashion, transportation and advertising, baseball walks us through the changes from the nineteenth century to current time. Set aside most of a day to take in all this museum has to offer.
