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!

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

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
