We have visited the Baseball Hall of Fame many times. Each time we visit we find something new to learn from. The American Baseball Experience is one of them. If you like baseball history you will enjoy this.

This place is a block away from the Baseball HOF. It gives a brief overview of some of the best players and history. Something to do when in the area. Self guided tour takes about 30mins. if not crowded.

This is a very interesting museum it's kind of weird being in the area where these old timers played Baseball like Babe Ruth, Lou Gerrig, and many more.

They could make this a little more stimulating. It's very dark and their is no audio, just a bunch of wax objects in a maze. Not great for kids or young adults.

The wax figures are in bad condition. The place is dark and smells. I recommend that you avoid the Was museum, it is not worth the money. The speaker system was far too loud for some sections and you could not hear it on others.

Coopers town was a fantastic little place to visit. The water was beautiful, food was great and the hall of fame was awesome! We will definitely be back in this town.

Yes, they have some bats in various colors at the museum store. There are several places on Main St. That sell bats and various items made from bats.
