Free admission and wonderful staff. The staff was extremely knowledgeable about Mr. Jackson and all were happy to talk about him and the baseball experience at the time he was a player. Highly recommend this attraction. It survives by donation only

The volunteers at the museum were very knowledgeable and had great information to share. Awe-inspiring to walk through the rooms where Shoeless Joe lived and died. A must for any baseball fan.

I was looking forward to visiting this museum as I am a rabid historical baseball fan. But, this museum is only open on Saturdays for a few hours. My plans didn't include Saturday on my itinerary. Very disappointed.
