A Baseball Pilgrimage

Almost everything you ever wanted to know about the game under one roof. Take ample time to read and understand the inscriptions and texts.

We visited the HOF while passing through on a road trip. A great experience for older and younger fans alike. Our first visit and found everything visitor friendly, well laid out, and full of information: from the history of the sport itself, individual team information, and wonderful memorabilia. Even though there were lots of folks there we did not feel... More

We've been to Cooperstown before and NOT gone to the hall of fame. We are so glad we did it this time. Lot's of great exhibits and stats for fans of all degrees of baseball interest.

This museum is beautiful. The staff is friendly. My 9 year old was in baseball heaven. Would not suggest if you have real small kids. My 5 year old lost interest quickly. Overall, a great experience.

You can spend hours here. Baseball fans will be in heaven. It has everything imaginable, about baseball, from statistics, to artifacts, pictures, interactive exhibits and the actual Hall of Fame is amazing. It does get quite busy so I would recommend going early in the day. Parking is limited and metered so I suggest you parking in one of the... More

Great experience for all ages with an interest in baseball now and back then. Spent hours there and no complains from him about being bored. We all enjoyed it just as much.

I didn't really want to go the Baseball Hall of Fame, but I ended up totally enjoying it. Beautiful little town, wonderful facility, easy to get around with the trolley. great family trip, but you really need more than 1 day

Really enjoyed seeing all the historical artifacts, great moments in baseball past, and the HOF plaques. Only complaint, not enough coverage of the great Orioles teams of the late 60's/early 70's.

Easy to navigate. More exhibits than you can view in less than two hours. Admission somewhat reasonable. Parking is a problem. Take the Trolley.

Truth: I'm not really a baseball fan. I don't dislike it. I just don't really pay attention to it. We came to Cooperstown to see a concert at Ommegang Brewery and made a weekend out of it. I (somewhat reluctantly) agreed to go to the museum because my husband really wanted to go. Glad we did. It's curated in a... More
