“Great for the baseball fanatic and the occassional fan”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

A very fun museum if you are a baseball fanatic but also if you are just familiar with the sport. We ended up spending nearly the entire day at the HOF with a short break for lunch. The exhibits are engaging and fun. And if you are a true fan or fanatic there is a lot of data to read and absorb.

“This place is a HOME RUN!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2012

Polite staff, excellent service. Military veterans and active military get in for free, you are greeted by friendly staff who are able to answer any questions you may have. The retail store is great but I was disappointed to see the lack of merchandise pertaining to the women who played professional ball during WW2. There was one small bronze statue for purchase, a book, and that was it. There is an incredible amount of memorabilia and this place would be fun for all. They have have so much to see-from Babe Ruth to A-Rod there is a wide variety of baseball greats past and present. There a few levels to see so allow plenty of time to see everything (get there early in the day for smaller crowds).

“An absolute must for baseball fans”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2012

Full of history and memorabilia that any baseball fanatic would find fascinating. The actual hall is awe inspiring. Something for every fan no matter which team you root for.
