Missed going to Williamsport by one playoff game as a kid .. so came back as a "big kid." This is really a special place. All the exhibits are carefully showcased. For the little gys (and some big ones too) there are some very engaging interactive exhibits - loved the "you are the shortstop" activity. A very nice logo wear store provides ample, quality souvenir selections. Go, but allow a couple of hours to do it justice.

My son has recently become obsessed with baseball and I could have slapped the person who told him the Little League Museum was on the way to from PA and Upstate NY. I thought I was saved when the website said it was closed for renovations but it opened two weeks before our trip.

On the way back from Niagara Falls I decided we should stop to make a nice break in long drive.

I have to say I'm glad I gave in. The museum just reopened and I was very impressed. It touched on different areas and had enough artifacts to interest both my son and I. The exhibit tags were easy to understand and not too long or overwhelming.

They had several first person accounts via touchscreens that talked about the founder of Little League, umpires, researcher for batting helmets,

Strategically placed half way through the exhibit is the interactive area. My son loved it - place your hand in a mitt and feel what it is like to receive a pitch from a little leaguer and major leaguer. Time your run between bases, see if you can stop a ball from going over the wall.

Lastly sit in a fake dug out and watch a movie on what happens during actual world series week and highlights from the last series. This was actually my son's favorite section.

Very affordable and not too big or small.

Con: the staff in the gift shop needs to get in gear before the series in August because they didn't know prices or register but I think it was because it had only been open for a week.

They did a great job redoing the museum. It is interesting for all whether or not they are baseball fans. Fun participatory activities for kids. The price is great for 2 adults and three under 12 it was less than $15 total.

Took the kids - they were bored out of their minds in about 15 minutes. Just go to the game. It's a lot more fun.
