Visiting the Hall of Fame is always a joy for us! You can view things from many years ago when the "First Class" played as well as the most current baseball items. Go and have fun!

Brought back so many memories of enjoying our baseball games at many stadiums since the 1950's. Yankee Stadium is a favorite! Spent at least 5 hours enjoying the museum and the town of Cooperstown. Can't wait to return!

I have been to Cooperstown many times for the induction ceremony and this time went with a good friend from work who had never seen the ceremony in person. We spent many hours in the museum and each time I visit I learn something new....More

Nothing about the history of stadiums. Random bats, hats, jerseys of modern day players (Who cares that these are the shoes they were during the 2012 All Star game?) Too much Babe Ruth and Hank Aaron. Only good things were the World Series rings and...More
