  • Great experience to take the kiddos and any baseball lovers. Recommend timing your visit so that you can see the promotional video that lasts about 15 minutes. The video highlights many of the artifacts of the museum and will give them context. We will certainly be recommending this museum to other parents.
  • Lots to see. In a well air conditioned building. Parking is close and the people who work there are friendly and helpful. Do your self a favor and check out the jazz museum while you are there. There was live music while we were there on a Wednesday afternoon. Well worth a visit baseball fan or no.
