Great museum for baseball lovers!

This is a great place to visit to see the history of baseball. And of course, the plaques of all the players inducted in the National Baseball Hall of Fame

Obviously this is a great destination for fans of baseball; if you don't care for sports or baseball find something else to do. Peerless repository of the national pastime, highlighted by finding the games or players one remembers. Could have used an introductory movie but the large theater was closed, so maybe it's being redone. Very enjoyable.

I am not the biggest baseball fan but I must admit that I was thrilled to visit this museum and see all of the great memorabilia. It is so beautifully laid out and easy to go through. We were in Cooperstown for our grandson's baseball tournament and visited here on our down time. Would definitely go back.

A must see for any baseball fan. Need more then a day to see all. Parking is available for a fee in Doubleday field lot which is close and within walking distance of museum and many shops and eateries. Cost for parking is reasonable. They also have parking in other lots for free and you can ride the trolley to... More

The baseball HOF was a good experience. My 1st time there and I'm 45. Lots of history and memorable moments there. I was hoping there would be some additional activities for kids. I think it would be good to have some interactive games for kids. The town is great lots of good stores with lots of baseball memorabilia there.

I like baseball, but I'm not a huge fan. Still, I loved the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum. It's not just a cold shrine to baseball heroes. The museum has a lot of memorabilia, videos and historical information that show how baseball fits into American life.

We are not baseball fans but couldn't (shouldn't) miss this while in Cooperstown. The museum is a series of rooms. We paid for our admission and were given a questionnaire to fill out. The prize for getting the answers correct was a pack of cards. Anyway, there was one question for each room and we TOTALLY enjoyed looking through the... More

The museum is a very nice tribute to baseball. Fanatics will love all the memorabilia and narratives for each. Casual fans will love seeing history of their favorite teams and non fans will enjoy the air conditioning. It was a wonderful experience and am happy I joined as a member to support the museum.

We spent a full 8 hours and met several people who were back for a second day. Take the free guided tour of the Hall of Fame Plaque Gallery in which the... More

The two upper floors are all about baseball and Americana history. The first floor is the "shrine" with the all of the plaques. We went in August. It was crowded during the day, but it was open until 9 p.m. and allowed in and out all day. So we spent two hours in the morning, then out for lunch, two... More
