I am an avid baseball fan, and this is my 4th visit to the National Baseball Hall of Fame. My first visit was in 1985 when I was 12 and now I'm 47. Much of the museum has changed over the years... more »
This is such a great place. The Hall of Fame is only the location with the plaques, the rest of it is a museum. The diversity and depth of information available is amazing. If you are a baseball fan you will need at least 5 hours to go through the Museum. I have been here four times and every time it gets better, the staff improves and changes the displays and they do such a wonderful job. The museum covers not only the typical major leagues, it also covers the negro leagues and women's leagues and even the writers. It a fantastic place, you should visit again and again.
This was the most amazing experience with my boys!! Definitely worth going and checking out. We spent 4 hrs and could of spent more time here of we had the time to do it. The staff was incredibly friendly and they make it super fun and interactive so its great for all ages. The Museum is set up perfect and really tells the story of baseball history.
