It's a shrine, really. The Gallery of Players who have been inducted over the years is thrilling to baseball fans, especially those of an age who will actually read the plaques and get their faces off their phones. The sculptures are beautiful and moving. The...More

Worth the trip, we got to spend several hours at the museum. Lots to see and look at. The topping on our bucket list of visiting all 30 MLB parks was to spend the day in Cooperstown. Everyone is friendly, knowledgeable and helpful.

If you're a fan of major league baseball in the USA - or a fan of sports history - you can't go wrong. There's 3 floors - and the exhibits are not all that big - but there is a lot of interesting facts and...More

I never watch baseball and never played baseball, and yet this museum was very interesting. We spent almost 5 hours there. We saw an interesting introductory film with some of the Hall of Fame players talking about their love of the game; it was very...More
