The museum was a great interest to our twin 16 year old boys. They waived the entrance fee if you eat at Harry Caray's restaurant which is attached to the museum. The museum included most Chicago sports with great photo ops and interactive sports games....More

Super reasonable and interactive! Not only was the entrance only $10, but then you get a $10 credit at the restaurant. Really interesting and fun activities to do throughout. Not very big but lots to explore and read.

Do not remember. Just know must easier overall if having a meal or drink at Harry Caray's, which produced free admission.

Even if they let you in, you won’t enjoy the museum at its full. It’s small indeed but I suggest you to go earlier than 15 min before closing.

The Hall of Legends comprises about half of the Museum and the other areas would still be open. It tends to be busiest on weekends and holidays.
