“Needs an update”
Reviewed July 17, 2012

Sorry, but this was in great need of an update. The figures are literally falling apart. The building is dingy and dank. Don't waste your money on this.

“it was ok - wax figures aren't that great - blooper movie excellent”
Reviewed July 13, 2012

We still had fun, and liked that we could have out picture taken with joe torre and president bush. some of the wax figures aren't really good, but they did resemble who they were supposed to, and the variety of people on display prompted nice discussions while we walked through. The Blooper Movie is hysterical!!!! Be sure to allocate enough time to sit through it in the museum, or buy it when you get out. It was great. I would prefer a lower admision price.

“Well worth the visit!”
Reviewed July 6, 2012

The Baseball Wax Museum in Cooperstown is well worth the visit. It's right in the center of town, near Doubleday Field. Price is very reasonable, and they show you a bloopers video that you MUST watch...it's hilarious! Definitely worth the visit.

“Not worth the whole ball of wax.”
Reviewed April 11, 2012

It was okay as a museum. Expected more. A bit disappointing. Spend more time in the Hall of Fame!
