    An amazing experience for those who love the game of baseball. Start on the second floor for exhibits detailing the history of the game through the decades.

    This is where the game's immortals are enshrined. The heart of the museum is the Hall of Fame gallery. The gallery has a plaque for each of the players who have been elected to the hall.

    The Plaque Gallery on the first floor is awesome, but MAKE SURE you spend time in the Records Room on Floor 3. It has a case with World Series rings all the way back to the 1900’s.

    I was here as a kid and then for the Piazza / Griffey Jr. introduction. While crowded, they did a great job of keeping order. The hall itself is incredible, but the whole place is worth a visit.

    So much history! Fantastic place to visit for any baseball fan. Free wifi available. Gift shop on lower level. Don't miss the video in the theater.

    Go into the plaque hall near the end of the day. All the kids are gone and only the real fans remain. Its quiet and you can really enjoy the room in peace... Like it's meant to be

    A lot to see on 3 levels. Be sure to visit sections on Negro League and Women in Baseball on level 2. "Who's on First?" is great on 3rd floor. Gift shop is huge, so leave time for that.

    You can touch the HOF plaques for good luck-Time goes by fast inside-Museum is so organized-some floors carpeted,good for being on feet.Lots of places to sit-Honus Wagner card is not always on display

    Great to see at least once. Young kids get bored quickly. Bring reading glasses and start on the 2nd floor. You need at minimum 3 hours and that's moving quickly.

    The greatest in the sport are honored here. $23 admission. Winter months give you the whole place to yourself. Make sure to visit the gift shop.

    A must see for any baseball or sports fan. Don’t bring the kiddos if they don’t have much patience. 😉

    A lot of exhibits are old + dated museum-wise, but don't miss the interactive video screens for clips and also for baseball records. The actual hall plaques are kind of disappointing, but hallowed

    This place is fantastic. I took my 12 year old son and we soaked it all up. The history and artifacts are incredible. As they say, baseball is all about stories, some of them are true.

    Red Sox fan? Check out some great memorabilia: Fisk's bat from Game 6, Williams' hitting grid, Yaz's 6-Shooter. There's a lot here, so take your time.

    Pro Tip: GO IN THE DEAD OF WINTER! Went in January and basically had the entire museum to ourselves.

    It's tempting to go during HOF weekend, but be prepared for massive crowds and not being able to take your time as much to see everything.

    Ceremony starts at about 1:30pm. It is free to attend, but be sure to arrive early to claim your spot (bring a lawn chair or blanket to sit on).

    Very informative though it soft peddles some of the bad behavior of the players it celebrates

    AAA discount, have your card ready so you don't have to hold up the line at the counter. & don't forget your sweater- it gets chilly.

    If you know you're going within the year, buy the membership to hall of fame in December. Its sold at a reduced price on their website, but with all the perks.

    Portable restrooms are available at the Ceremony, and the local high school will be selling water, drinks, and other refreshments.

    There is always a great debate for the best class, but try this instead: try to figure out the greatest sections of walls in the great hall.
