A great idea but past it's prime. Does hold some interest with it's numerous life size baseball greats, but entrance fee is too pricey.

Some great wax figures, reasonably priced. About an hour or less to walk through. The video was very loud, but a nice little theatre to watch old highlights.

This is a very nice attraction. The wax figures are well done and many a great baseball story is told during your visit.

It was a fun place to spend an hour. The wax figures were neat to see. The Bloopers video was fun to watch. It is an old 3 story building. Call ahead if you go during the off season because they close early. There were lots of cool shirts to buy in the store and they have the Bloopers dvd... More

Although the museum was interesting, it was kind of disappointing, too. It's on Main Street and within an old building. Some of the wax figures had no resemblance to who they were supposed to be, but others were very good. It was fun, but not what I expected.

Hey wasn't a bad place to visit. It was fun but more fun when the elevator is working. Worth a stop if you like wax museums and want to see some old time players

Had a few cool looking statues. Spent most of the time watching the bloopers movie. Costs about twice what I would have thought it should be. Cool T-shirts though.

This was a great stop for something fun for our daughter who isn't quite as into baseball history as her Dad. She had a great time looking at the figures and loved the scene from A League of Their Own. It was an affordable and fun addition to our Cooperstown trip. She also loved shopping at the gift shop, lots... More

Some other attractions in town were not yet open so we went to the Wax Museum as a part of our Cooperstown stay. There were a number of statues and there was a nice mix of old and new. Whether it was worth the $10 admission is debatable. I agree with another reviewer that the some of the videos and... More

Great to see wax statues, would have liked to see more of them. Some good reading on old baseball stories . Blooper video was ok too. Wished it was bigger.
