Next to the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, New York, and the Negro Baseball Hall of Fame in Kansas City, Missouri, a true baseball fan is obligated to make a pilgrimage to the Ted Williams Museum and Hitters Hall of Fame at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Florida. Since the Tampa Bay Rays haven't been much of an attraction... More

I was amazed by the complexity of this exhibit. The meshing of St. Petersburg and Baseball hisotry is excellent. The Museum has done an amazing job of showcasing and enhancing Mr. Scharaders amazing contribution of thousands of autographed baseballs. I cannot go into the detail I would like to, but suffice it to say that for someone who has been... More

The museum has memorabilia from many baseball players and teams, both old and new. It feels like you get to experience a little bit of baseball history right at a game. There are , of course several Rays players high lighted, but also superstars from other teams as well. Admission is free once you get into a Tampa Bay Rays... More

Visited here during our visit to Tropicana Field. Contained one of the better baseball collections for some of the best hitters in baseball. Definitely worth stopping by before a game and we would visit again.

Think of a mini-Cooperstown. This is really a neat half hour to an hour walk thru tucked away in Tropicana Park. If we hadn't stopped to talk to one of the ushers we would not have know it was there, it kind of in a out of the way place in the ballpark. Lots of memorabilia from a lot of... More

Set aside at least 45 minutes to see the Hall of Fame of hitters in this museum + all of the unique artifacts of Ted Williams - a tribute to what makes statistics so much a part of Baseball and allows you to argue who was better at any given position.

This is a great museum with awesome baseball memorabilia. This is named Ted Williams, but other items of great legends are displayed also.

This exhibition has all the photos and memorabilia of all the baseball greats. Photographs, jerseys, and more. During the Tampa Bay Rays home games they actually have auctions where you can bid on many collectibles that benefit the museum.

Each time we go in here, it is like seeing it for the first time. We always find something new we missed the previous visits we have made. Make the effort to see this place prior to the game or miss some of the game to see it.
