This is a very nice attraction. The wax figures are well done and many a great baseball story is told during your visit.

Had a few cool looking statues. Spent most of the time watching the bloopers movie. Costs about twice what I would have thought it should be. Cool T-shirts though.

Great to see wax statues, would have liked to see more of them. Some good reading on old baseball stories . Blooper video was ok too. Wished it was bigger.

Stories and some figures were good but others did not look realistic. We have been to other wax museums and thought this lacked a little of the pizzaz. Did enjoy seeing some of the blooper movie but buy a copy for home. It'll be cheaper...More

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.
