It's not easy getting to Cooperstown (for both baseball players and tourists), but the scenery is great and the Hall of Fame is fantastic. We visited in November which gave us a good look all the exhibits. It was truly and moving experience.

What a wonderful museum and town. The grand hall is just phenomenal and the guided tour we had was excellent. The 15 minute movie in the theatre was a great way to start our experience here. The price of one day admission for our family...More
