The Hall of Fame is a MUST. It is so well done. No matter what your interest, there is a specialty area. Players, stadiums, stats, Negro league, women in baseball, photography, art and finally, the hall of inductees. At least once, all baseball lovers should visit. It's a blast.

My husband loved going here. He was like a little kid with candy. There are so many things that you can see and learn about. Loved that it was touch friendly to keep people entertained rather than just straight displays.

My family and I visited the Baseball Hall of Fame for the first time and loved it. We enjoyed the exhibits and it was very educational. We learned a lot and can't wait to go back again some day.

We took a major detour on the way home to visit this iconic museum. Haven't been here in about 7 years and it is wonderful. Whether you are a baseball fan or not, the history of America's pastime is wonderful. The town is quaint and historic.

Visited with my Father and we both enjoyed it. Well layout with a flow that showcases the history as well as the stars of baseball. My father had been there about 15 years ago and commented that it had been upgraded and expanded. Very enjoyable way to spend a day.

I think there is something here for everyone. You just have to look for it in the context of baseball. I guess baseball folks might be intrigued by the stats but I much prefer to hear a story. I think the best museums are good at telling a story of some sort. This places has quite a few stories.

I love baseball. The Hall brought back so many memories, not only from games I've seen, but of time spent with loved ones. We also stopped by Doubleday Field and caught a game on a Monday afternoon!

An American MUST for baseball fans!! It is very well done and two days there were full. The village of Cooperstown was so quaint with diners and gorgeous Victorian homes.

Must confess to being a baseball fan from childhood. It's great to spend a few hours reflecting on American history through the eyes of this sport. The museum is well organized. I loved the videos that were playing in the various areas. In the Babe Ruth exhibit, Babe's voice, on various occasions, was present. I thought that the section on... More
