“Worth the visit”
Review of Ty Cobb Museum

Ty Cobb Museum
Ranked #2 of 3 things to do in Royston
Attraction details
Reviewed July 6, 2013

I visited the Ty Cobb Museum and although the museum is small, it was very well organized since the museum highlighted Cobb's life and legacy to baseball and his contributions to Royston. I was amazed to know that he helped to start the first hospital on Royston: Cobb Memorial Hospital which help to save thousands of live in Franklin County and the surrounding counties around Franklin County. I especially enjoyed the short video about Ty Cobb and the staff at the museum was very helpful.

The museum is located in a medical building. Very well organized and maintained. A big smile and warm greeting from Wanda at the front desk set the tone for my visit! It was a pleasant 90 minutes viewing the Cobb displays and short movie. I recommend it to any baseball fan!

I agree with other reviewers in that the museum building (a medical clinic) is a little off-putting, but once you go inside and into the museum it's really sweet. I didn't really know anything about Ty Cobb and learned everything I needed to from the museum. They have great artifacts organized and displayed well. Most importantly, the gift shop has really cute souvenirs.

Pretty cool site on the way to Lake Hartwell. If you like baseball, and it's history, then you will like this place. Pretty cool place.

This little museum is definitely worth the detour off of interstate 85. The building itself is a bit strange (it's a medical office), but don't let that fool you. This museum has lots of great information about Ty Cobb and some wonderful artifacts. While it may not go into tremendous detail about some of the darker aspects of Cobb's personality, it doesn't ignore them completely. The museum has recently made Cobblehead dolls that are reasonably priced ($15). Certainly worth the trip for baseball fans.
