My nephew and I went to the Hall of Fame on a day trip. We enjoyed the hall and even the little 10 question quiz they do for the kids. My issue was that it wasn't exactly stimulating for a ten year old. A lot...More

The baseball hall of fame is done excellent! Plenty of great exhibits for baseball fans young and old. They added a new exhibit with lockers from each team displaying record breaking or significant memorabilia. My girlfriend and I spent about five hours there but could...More

The Hall of Fame was a great experience. There are so many artifacts and such history included in the Hall of Fame. Definitely worth going to and reading all of the information.

It was obvious as I drove into town that the hordes descend in summer, with off-site parking lots and signs that trolleys will take you into town. That's great, but it was SO nice NOT to fight the crowds on my visit. As others have...More

This is a great place for everyone to visit, even if you aren't a big baseball fan. I especially enjoyed learning historical tidbits about the players, teams and the game itself. Well worth the price of admission too!

We went to the hall of fame in the off-season and there were no crowds at all! The staff were super-friendly and helpful. This is a great museum. Some of the lighting made it difficult to read the plaques.

If you like Baseball well this is the place for you! We started on the Second floor and were amazed by the amount of displays! Really liked the few photo ops which are included throughout the museum! The third floor was our second day out!...More

If you are a baseball fan, this is a place not to be missed! Nicely laid out, you will see the history of baseball and all the greats. My favorite: the famous Abbott and Castello bit "Who's On First?"

Have not been h ed e since 89. Lots has changed. Rows and rows of memorabilia replaced by slick displays with more words than substance. Disappointing for a real fan...

I never knew the back stories of many of the players and when I read - so emotional. I'm a true baseball fan, though even if you're not - a must stop.

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.
