I must start by acknowledging that while I like baseball and I do follow it generally, I am not a crazy, die-hard fan. I think for an avid fan, visiting the Hall of Fame and museum is an amazing experience. For me it was a very enjoyable couple of hours. The museum is well-designed, and it was fun to remember...

Amazing Babe Ruth display. A bit crowded but never chaotic. Recommend waiting until 11:00 am to let the crowd get in at the 10:00 am opening. I planned on two hours to visit but took four!

Museum is a shrine to our national pastime. I was impressed with its organization as well as the civility of my fellow guests. The font's on some signs in the exhibit hall could be larger. Not to be missed.

Even if you're not a baseball fan--you must go! There is so much history here and so well done. We have been many times, and each time we see something new! This museum is a true tribute to America's favorite past-time and all of the players who have made people enjoy the game!

Any baseball fan and any fan of any sport will love this place! It has stood the test of time still showing the sport of baseball the way it should be Our teenage grandsons were so interested in all the informative displays. The golden plaques for all the Hall Members remains the same as it has for years. Cooperstown is... More

This museum is an excellent place to visit - well worth the trip. I especially liked the sections that had the records - like the most lifetime homeruns, etc. You can even take a quiz to test your baseball knowledge.

Wow! If you are a baseball nut, this is the place to go. So much to see in this place. Very organized and clean. If you are going with a family, just buy a membership. You get a lot of free stuff.
