There is a picturesque little town in upstate New York called Cooperstown. It is the perfect locale for a beautiful poem that is The National Baseball Hall of Fame. Attractive, intuitive, informative, fun. Like baseball? Go there.

My husband is a baseball fanatic! So we enjoyed learning about the history of how it started. Three floors and need few hours. It was interesting and some good memories of former players. It was worth it.

This is an excellent museum filled with memorabilia. It is interesting even for those who are not big baseball fans. Do see the 15 minute movie. It is excellent. Brought tears to my eyes.

See displays of your favorite team(s) and players. Learn a bunch of baseball trivia and don’t miss the 15 minute film. Loved hearing the thoughts, memories, and feelings from selected Hall of Fame candidates. The museum is a gem!

If you love baseball, visiting the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum is a MUST! It begins with a short movie about just how much baseball means to Americans and how much they love it. It is excellent and really gets you pumped up....More

Visited the Hall on the same day as cooptoberfest, so half the town was fenced off and there was limited parking. Not very handicapped friendly for parking. Lots of interesting stuff if you are into baseball or pop history. Nice displays presented well. Would have...More

You can make it in one day if you come tight when it opens. However you can only read and absorb for a certain period before your mind cant do more! We spent six hours.
