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.

A must see and so worth it. The likeness of the was, figures is both amazing and Erie. The gift shop is very pricey.

What a disappointment! The museum smelled musty and looked like it had not been cleaned for months. From the filthy rug in the elevator to the lighting in the galleries, this place needs serious maintenance. Starting on the 3rd floor was odd but I get that you work your way down to level 1. However, the layout wasn't in chronological... More

We visited during the off-season and knew going into the experience that the exhibits would not be up to snuff. And they definitely weren't. In fact in several the upper half of a player would be on one side of the room and the lower half would be elsewhere in the display. That lent a rather macabre "mood" to things.... More

Too much attention paid to the Yankees and for some reason in love with Pete Rose. Had Pete making his induction speech for the Hall of Fame, which will never happen. Pete... More

My title says it all. Especially Pete Rose, whom we believe started out to be Ron Guidry. The only thing that kept us from asking for a return of the $9.95 admission fee was the hilarious Bloopers DVD that runs constantly. Allow 45-60 minutes for that film. The wax exhibits are poorly maintained; some are funny because they are SO... More
