Whether a baseball fan or not, Hallof Fame Museum is a MUST! I am a baseball fan and before I knew it - I had spent over six hours in the museum. My only complaint being a Kansas City Royal fan is that there was not much at all about the Royals, the Baseball Academy that Royals founder Ewing Kauffman... More

Visited in 2009 for the Hall of Fame induction ceremony. The Hall was slammed, and the town was hopping. Baseball fever was in full swing. History abounds for the baseball fans, this is surely one to check on the bucket list. Beautiful land surrounds Cooperstown, the ride in from Mass was beautiful.

If you are even a casual baseball fan there is something of interest at the Hall of Fame. The staff is friendly, accommodating when they can be and knowledgeable.

My son and I were there Hall of Fame weekend-- it was way too crowded to see everything in one day-- but we saw enough and it was tremendous.. I will be making a return trip-- you need 2-3 solid days to see it all. Was a bucket list item and not disappointed! Wow, what a place!

Had the pleasure of visiting the museum on Saturday of Induction weekend. Things are crazy, yes, but the staff did a pretty good job keeping things flowing. The line took about 20-30 minutes to get through and once inside we were awashed in baseball history. Lots of great features from the early days to current. Be prepared, if visiting on... More

This is baseball heaven on earth. All baseball fans MUST get here at least once. Like the game change is inevitable, this was my third visit, and the museum has changed each time. Some changes ( like the DH ) aren't for the best. Baseball, to be enjoyed,it is a slow progression to the ninth inning. This museums incarnation will... More

You must go to this if you have any interest in baseball. You could truly spend hours looking at all the displays. Make sure to see the film when you first get there. It's fun and interesting! Gets you into the spirit of baseball! You will have to visit the gift shop too!

We visited for the Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony. Do not miss Sat night parade of Hall of Fame members! The crowds were huge, but all fans of the sport. Saw any favorites from the past. The Hall itself is a gem, but there were too many people to enjoy it fully. Any serious baseball fan has to visit here.... More

We visited the Hall of Fame on the weekend of the induction. While a bit crowded for my taste, the Hall is splendid in its performance and dedication to the national pastime. The HOF does a terrific job of painting the history of my favorite game and tells the story of where the game has been and where its going.... More
