My husband is the baseball fan. I wasn't sure I'd get much out of it. I ended up enjoying it almost as much as he did. There is something for everyone here. I'm so glad I went along!

Nine of us went to Hall of Fame (7 children: ages 4 to 21; 2 parents: yes.) Thoroughly enjoyed both the static displays and the video displays. "Who's on First!" is always a highlight! All smiles! The baseball hall of fame is good for everyone,...More

We drove up from Maryland to complete this bucket list item. We're both glad we visited but probably won't visit again unless one of our favorite players gets inducted. You'll hear that it takes anywhere from 2 hours to 2 days to visit. We took...More

There isn't a lot more I can say here that the other reviews haven't already said. Parking can be a pain. The hall is great. The staff is great. This was my third trip there and it's been different every time I go. I'm sure...More

We spent a little over 3 hours at the hall of fame. It is SO well done. The only disappointments were the face of the building is being renovated, so the entrance is not very attractive at the moment and their theater is closed.

There are 3 floors of exhibits showcasing all major league teams. There are historic artifacts such as balls, bats, & jerseys used in specific game situations, along with artwork, statues, & plaques. I can't add much more than the other reviews here but I can...More

Anyone who has followed baseball for some time (like me, over 50 years) will be fascinated just discovering all the facets of the Hall of Fame. I finally found the time to visit it. It not only has pictures, it also has videos and even...More

Great experience! A place you need two days to visit. Recommend it to even people who are not a baseball fan.

Believe it or not, we parked on the street. It's paid parking the bad part it's a two hour limit so you have to come out and re-up your parking. But the hall stamps your hand and you can go in and out all day. In fact we did... More

They have a lot just outside the city with a tram that runs back and forth to the hall all day. That is probably your best bet. Look for the signs as you approach Cooperstown.
