While the Hall of Fame with the plaques of each inductee is neat to see for a baseball fan, there is much more to the Hall of Fame than that. The place is a full baseball museum, with neat artifacts from the mid 1800's through today. With special exhibits dedicated to African-American baseball, women's baseball, and Latin-American baseball, even the... More

How much does my wife love me? She let me visit the HOF while she went to a laundromat! This was almost everything I'd hoped for. Lots of great information and exhibits about the history and evolution of the game. Great to see all the memorabilia. There is a lot to see and even if you pace yourself you will... More

The Hall of bronze plaques is amazing! I loved that they even showed the player's military service. The memorabilia is amazing. Loved the lockers for each team with special pieces from my favorite players! We definitely will be back!

Recently took my boyfriend here for his birthday. He is a baseball fan and I'm not. This trip turned out to be fun and informative for both of us. The history in the museum is more than just teams, its players, the history of the game and stadiums, and tells the history of different races and sexes breaking into the... More

Late Review - My dad took my brother and I here as kids and I had been wanting to take my son. I finally got the chance this summer and the trip included my wife and daughter as well. My son and I are both huge baseball fans and we thoroughly loved going through the museum and the various exhibits.... More

It is the holy shrine of baseball and what more is there to say. We had a private tour package thru our Inn which is only available January and February. I think we only saw 6 other people there so if you really hate crowds and want to really see everything this is the time to go. The town is... More

Of course this is the must-see shrine for any baseball lover...or even liker. I like to go in the off-season, when you can breeze through at you're own leisure and not have to fight the crowds. Too many great exhibits to name and many will depend on your baseball knowledge and allegiance.

went up for a long weekend and visited the hall of fame on a saturday. it was perfect; no too crowded and not to barren. i can imagine this place would be packed during the warmer months. nice and clean. well lit. large gift shop-decently priced. you could literally spend days in there reading over all the baseball info. 3...
