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

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.

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.
