I cried - National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum

You stand there looking at a couple of microphones and a painting of Yankee Stadium while a tape plays of the great broadcasters, one after another, in short segments.
Some of the moments are meaningful, some seem a bit random. Ernie's is a joke, almost an insult. The first inning of the last game of the season, in Baltimore???? Nothing from ? The last game in Tiger Stadium?
A nothing game played in Baltimore??? And i had to stand there for, what, minutes to hear it? There has to be a way to bring the audio video artifacts and memories to the public, and customizeable. Some way for people to watch and listen to their memories. Last beef. This is about major league baseball, and mostly white major league baseball. While it has done a good job of including the Negro Leagues and women, there are some things missing. Minor league baseball. Little League, and other amateur leagues. College baseball. Baseball cards. There is a fairly empty room upstairs that has a couple of display cases on some of these, but more as an afterthought.
I realize that somewhere the Hall has a huge warehouse full of stuff, and that it cannot possibly display everything it has. But, the Hall could put things in better context, tell baseball's story better. Let me see what baseball was like in, say, ; the players, the rules, the stuff, the stadiums all together in one space so I can better understand what it was like.
Give every team its own room; with their stuff, something of the stadiums, and those audio video moments good and bad. But, these are minor quibbles in the overall experience of the Hall. The stuff is here. The memories are here. The ghosts are here. Those memories will bring a tear or two to your eyes. And that's a good thing. If you grew up with baseball then this is a must visit. The hall is beautifully designed in a beautiful setting in Cooperstown. The heroes that we grew up watching are enshrined here, their amazing stories complete with pictures and videos are exhibited, In the village you will often find HOF members signing books and autographs.
A great trip to the HOF. There is too much to see in one day if you are going to look at everything. My husband is an ex-minor league player, so understands too much and wanted to read every single possible thing in the place, which is impossible. The museum is well done and very professional. It's not a place for kids, they can't possibly understand and appreciate the displays unless they are a baseball protege.

Save your sanity and go as an adult trip. Ladies or those less than thrilled to be in this place for 8 hours just remember there are lots of bars in the area if you need a quick lift. I'd recommend this place for any baseball fan over Superb museum, more so if you are a baseball fan. As Montrealers, we did find a few remnants of the Montreal Expos, still alive in our hearts Gary Carter! A great building. Only thing is to actually find the place, not a lot of road signs along the way, and the entrance is not that obvious. Otherwise, can't go without seeing this if you love baseball.
This place never disappoints us as there is always new exibits to see. I also founfd out the last time we visited that if you're a member and you buy too much in the gift shop they will ship it home for free; even though we live in Canada; your admission is also free. Staff was super friendly and not crowded at all in the middle of January. If it wasn't for my 5 yr old and 8 year old getting tired of looking at old baseballs and gloves I think I would have spent 2 days in there. Flights Vacation Rentals Restaurants Things to do.
