This place is a block away from the HOF. It gives an overview of some of the best players and some history of the game. Nice thing to do when in the area. Self guided tour takes about 30mins. if not crowded.

The museum was cool and the kids loved it but I felt like we were in and out very quickly. Prices should be $5 a person

A little high priced for what you get to see. Some fun facts for the kids. No recent players so kids didn't really know anyone.

We went here while visiting for a week for a baseball tournament. $8 per person for admission, 2 floors of wax famous baseball players. Not too long that the kids lose interest, and a lot of interesting facts accompany the wax figures.

Just okay. It had a movie area with a fun cool blooper reel but not worth the money. A lot of the facts you can see in the Hall of Fame. I say skip it!

We were in Cooperstown for the induction weekend and decided to give this place a try. While it was a bit pricey, it was a nice museum. It had 2 levels and a gift shop. The kids loved it! I would recommend this attraction if you have a few minutes to walk through!

Decided to stop in when walking by one day when it was raining out. It was interesting and different, I'm sure the kids would find it fun. We would do it again and would suggest it to others.

This was an unexpected treat we discovered while visiting Cooperstown. Great collection of figures that while not Madame Tussauds level are still very impressive and very nicely done. There are a lot of built-in photo opportunities you can take advantage of near the figures as well. It won't take you long to visit but is definitely worth the time.

This is a very small museum with wax figures in pose. We went through the entire museum in about 30 minutes. Most of the figures are in play pose, there is even a "2 Georges" exhibit from Seinfeld. Due to the size of the museum, the cost should be cut in half, from $10 to $5. It was fun, but... More

This attraction has good intention but definitely needs to be updated. It is on the expensive end for what it is. Pictures are hard to take as the lighting is very poor throughout. It is a fast attraction, but I would set aside at least an hour or two if you want to read postings on the wall. This attraction... More
