  • Spent 2.5 hours going floor to floor watching film clips, looking at memorabilia and plaques. Full of bats, gloves, balls and uniforms. Well worth the time spent reminiscing.  more »

  • Great place to go if you are a baseball fan. Many exhibits that you could spend all day reading and viewing the material. The staff is always friendly and very knowledgeable. They have a great gift shop as well with reasonably priced items if you're not looking to spend a fortune. A fun place to bring children as well. There are many nice places to eat in the surrounding area,which is a cute town.
  • I'm not really a big baseball fan but a sports fan nonetheless. This is an awesome museum in an awesome town. I suggest going in early spring because I hear it gets packed during the summer, after all Cooperstown is a summer town. Definitely a must go for any die hard baseball fan
