“preserving history, honoring excellence, connecting generations”
The National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum is an independent, non-profit educational institution dedicated to fostering an appreciation of the historical development of baseball and its impact on our culture by collecting, preserving, exhibiting and interpreting its collections for a global audience as well as honoring those who have made outstanding contributions to our national pastime. The National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum collections feature just under 40,000 three-dimensional items, three million books and documents and 500,000 photographs. The Museum tells visitors the story of baseball through its three-story timeline, with the majestic Plaque Gallery serving as a centerpiece. The museum is supposedly haunted by Ted Williams and was heard saying "persevere, to have courage, to excel and be great". Other items in the museum may be still connected to deceased players not wanting to give up their favorite pastime.
Great for a day. Cute Main Street as well. Thought the hall of fame was a little over priced but oh well.
Great outing for families who enjoy baseball. You don't have to be a baseball lover to enjoy this stop. A lot of great artifacts and history. The gift shop is a little pricey but they have some cool items.
I like baseball a lot, but I'm not a baseball nut or anything...I still thought this place was so cool and I learned a lot. Maybe parts were a little cheesy but there's a lot of interesting aspects to baseball history that they cover- and yes, that exhibit from A League of Their Own is real!
