The wax museum in the center of town was a disappointment, not worth the $10. There were only about half of the figures that we thought looked like the person. It was dark and dingy in there also.

This place needs a little updating, some of the exhibits are showing their age, and they could add more to see.

If you are a New York Yankees fan this is your place to visit, but for $12.00 it is not worth it, not what we expected at all

We have visited the Baseball Hall of Fame many times. Each time we visit we find something new to learn from. The American Baseball Experience is one of them. If you like baseball history you will enjoy this.

This place is a block away from the Baseball HOF. It gives a brief overview of some of the best players and history. Something to do when in the area. Self guided tour takes about 30mins. if not crowded.

This is a very interesting museum it's kind of weird being in the area where these old timers played Baseball like Babe Ruth, Lou Gerrig, and many more.

Yes, they have some bats in various colors at the museum store. There are several places on Main St. That sell bats and various items made from bats.
