Movie on Baseball bloopers was hysterical. Good to sit was watch after walking all morning. The wax museum part was kinda of limited and I seen better likenesses. Too much attention paid to the Yankees and for some reason in love with Pete Rose. Had Pete making his induction speech for the Hall of Fame, which will never happen. Pete... More

My title says it all. Especially Pete Rose, whom we believe started out to be Ron Guidry. The only thing that kept us from asking for a return of the $9.95 admission fee was the hilarious Bloopers DVD that runs constantly. Allow 45-60 minutes for that film. The wax exhibits are poorly maintained; some are funny because they are SO... More

I couldn't believe how much it's changed in the years since my kids were young. 3 floors so much to see. The staff is so pleasant. Its a beautiful museum for kids young and old. Enjoy!

The wax figures were second rate. Overpriced for the number of figures in the so called museum. The wax figures had cob webs on them.

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.
