Very interesting, it was enjoyable to see and read about Babe’s early years. I also learned how he got the name “Babe”.

Excellent place for a baseball fan to visit. It shows the room where Babe was born and has lots of information on his life. I learned a lot of things I did not know. I do recommend a visit.

There is a back entrance which doesn't have stairs and an elevator. The website has a place to contact the museum and also a phone number so call and make sure.
