Enjoyed this museum very much! So much more than I expected...if you love baseball you will enjoy this museum. They also have the Blues Museum in the same building, so makes a great afternoon visit! Both are very entertaining and interesting.

I was glad my son wanted to come here. My seven year old granddaughter was full of question. A very educational experience for all. Plan on returning.
