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.

Stories and some figures were good but others did not look realistic. We have been to other wax museums and thought this lacked a little of the pizzaz. Did enjoy seeing some of the blooper movie but buy a copy for home. It'll be cheaper than the museum.

I was very surprise that it was a lot better than I thought, and pricing was very reasonable. we joked that it would maybe have 7 wax statues but there were more than, the only issue was they were playing a video that was extremely loud

Had glanced quickly at reviews and thot this was a place to probably skip. We found it much more than 30+ wax figures--we found special little baseball historical facts and were tied together with a special touch. Go see this.
