Even if you are not baseball fan you could spend the better part of a day taking in the history.

Three floors of old and not so old history. I had two 10 year old boys running from display to display and we still spent the better part of the day at the museum. They will stamp... read more

Three floors of old and not so old history. I had two 10 year old boys running from display to display and we still spent the better part of the day at the museum. They will stamp your hand so you can take a break and return to finish your tour. Even if you are not an avid baseball fan... More

I can not imagine a world without BASEBALL! The minute you enter the town of Cooperstown, you get a sense that you just walked back in time to quaint Ole Main Street. People from all over the world of all ages with a cheerful pep in their step and irresistible contagious smiles. All of us journeying to the National Baseball... More

The Hall of Fame was awesome, so much information. We really enjoyed our visit and spent 7 hrs in the museum. I would recommend taking a break and going to lunch the going back. There is a lot of reading and lots of facts. We learned a lot about baseball! We would definitely recommend for anyone who enjoys baseball.

I have been to the Hall of Fame several times over the years and delight in the Thruway ride and displays available to all fans and baseball historians. Things never grow old in Cooperstown and the Finger Lakes are gorgeous. A day trip or an overnight fits the bill.

This place is a must for any baseball fan! We visited the Friday of induction weekend, so the place wasn't as crowded as Saturday and Sunday were. Amazing artifacts can be see of the game's best players and teams. The plaque gallery is a thrill to see! We enjoyed visiting the Hall and the large gift shop as well.

So much, so good. There was just one exhibit after another, some more interesting than others depending on each visitors interest, age, and experiences. It is a fantastic experience. A baseball fanatic could easily spend a whole day or even more there, but even the novice should enjoy a couple of hour visit. If I were to find one fault,... More

This is a MUST pilgrimage for ANY baseball fan. The city is beautiful. The townsfolk are friendly and helpful. It was the 2nd largest crowd ever there. You have to have a week to see everything. Bring your Visa, because the home of the Baseball Hall of Fame doesn't take American Express :) Maybe I can get re-imbursed by Visa... More

As you enter the spacious Hall, even if you have only a passing interest in baseball, you instantly re-visit the carefree summer nights of your childhood. For me, that decade was the 1960s which began with a world series win by my Pirates over the dreaded Yankees. Before the decade concluded, my father, who instilled in me a love of... More

Visiting the Baseball Hall of Fame is fantastic whenever you can go, the exhibitions, exhibits and everything baseball is a marvel to see....but don't try to do it on Induction Weekend, this sleepy little 3 Block town plays host to upwards of 50,000 visitors and the souvenir shops and eateries make a killing. This years inductees Mike Piazza and Ken... More
