Movie was entertaining and nostalgic! Questions that I asked were pursued and answered to my satisfaction. I could have spent several days there if I were alone... BB buffs can not miss this place! Great presentations and exhibits!!

My husband and I finally made the trip. It was wonderful, especially the stories of the ball players. My personal favorite was the Hank Aaron exhibit. It really showed the tenacity of his family and his fine character. Everyone is so friendly in the town...More

We had a great visit to the BHOF. We arrived early which was good because it got fairly crowded, which surprised me since it’s early June and many schools aren’t out yet. My teenage boys liked it, but there was a lot of reading and...More

Nice to see all of the historical items from years past. Three floors of displays. We went early and stayed ahead of the tour groups and the kids. Two to three hours is enough to cover it.

Our first visit, and we were not disappointed. The staff was very friendly, the exhibits were great. We really appreciated that they allow you to leave and re-enter. This allowed us to tour 1/2 of museum, go to lunch, then finish our tour.

The displays in this museum were outstanding. Don't miss the video played in the theatre as it is so heartfelt it will nearly bring you to tears. Be sure to walk down to Otsego Lake.

This is more than just a hall of fame. Of course there is the hall with plaques for all of those players who have been inducted into the hall of fame but there is much more. There is a section with a locker for each...More

Plan to spend several hours going through this museum and still not seeing everything. If you are a baseball fanatic, this is the place for you. One thing I learned is that every item is DONATED to the museum; they don't purchase anything. Many of...More
