I couldn't believe how much it's changed in the years since my kids were young. 3 floors so much to see. The staff is so pleasant. Its a beautiful museum for kids young and old. Enjoy!

The wax figures were second rate. Overpriced for the number of figures in the so called museum. The wax figures had cob webs on them.

This place is a block away from the HOF. It gives an overview of some of the best players and some history of the game. Nice thing to do when in the area. Self guided tour takes about 30mins. if not crowded.

The museum was cool and the kids loved it but I felt like we were in and out very quickly. Prices should be $5 a person

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.
