Every baseball fan has to visit the Hall of Fame! Every team is adequately represented, but the stars are prominently featured. We were reminded of the enduring records of Babe Ruth, Christy Mattheson, Lou Gehrig, Jackie Robinson, just o name a few. A small exhibition of women's professional teams is included. Worth the time but only for real fans!

On my recent vacation I went to three Halls of Fame: baseball, football, and hockey. Out of those three sports I'm a larger baseball fan but I was underwhelmed by this hall. They do a great job with presenting the beginnings of the game and have quite a bit to see from that time period up until about the mid... More

Growing up playing baseball, this was a bucket list place to go. History of the game from its inception to the present. A walk through takes 3-4 hrs. and you could spend more time if you have it. It was interesting to see the changes over time with gloves, uniforms and rules. I was interested in how Cooperstown became the... More

I've been a baseball buff since I was a little kid. It's the only sport that I have ever found enjoyable to play, watch, and study. I had wanted to visited Cooperstown since I was young kid and now I finally got the chance. I was not let down. The amount of history located inside of the hall is just... More

The history of the game is on display with interactive learning available on most exhibits. Even the most indifferent fan would find these exhibits fascinating. Yes all the stars were on display but so were lessons on diversity through exhibits on Latin, Black and Female baseball players. The plaque room is hallowed ground and the gift shop has everything.

Not much more I can say that hasn't been said already but this is a first rate Museum. My wife is not a big baseball fan and she loved it. Just a great place to visit and so much to look at.

There's a lot to see so be prepared to spend all day. Fortunately you can leave and return, so we went to lunch and then went back. For true baseball fans it's a must.Hall of fame gallery is only a small part. Trace the history of the game, find record holders for any baseball statistic, great photos and artifacts. The... More

Big baseball fan but there's something for anyone even remotely interested in baseball. History, teams, plays, players, records and statistics, special movie and guest speakers. We were able to hear producers and directors of several made for ESPN films the day we were there. If you're a fan you'd better reserve the day for this place. You'll be able to... More

This was an OK Museum if you are a die hard fan. If you are not, it might be boring honestly. The museum was cramped and dark, so you could not read the artifacts or letters too well. The Hall with the placques was nice to see. Although I can't believe Roger Maris is not in the Hall. He was... More
