If there was ever a Hall of
Fame for museums, the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum would
be inducted on the first ballot.
makes a museum great resides in its ability to educate and entertain to
a wide audience. The National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum
expertly connects with visitors of all ages, making it a special family
travel pilgrimage that can be visited over and over again.
With an always interesting rotation of modern displays and
exhibitions, the Baseball Hall of Fame never fails to tap into our love
of baseball's traditional yet timeless appeal.
children, this magical baseball experience includes discovery tours
with a scavenger hunt theme, kid-friendly interactvive exhibitions, and
various informative and entertaining flipbooks and flip-up panels. The
Hall of Fame also features The Sandlot Kids' Clubhouse, a learning
center for kids ages two to eight-years-old, where children can find
baseball joy in a library filled with baseball books, video clips of
Hall of Famers reading children's books and many games and toys.
Additionally, the Hall of Fame showcases a colorful movie theater with
a baseball stadium theme and lively baseball film footage set to John
Fogarty's spirited classic song, "Centerfield." Other personal favorite
include the walls of baseball cards and an amazing gift shop with lots
of familiar and hard-to-find baseball merchandise, many with the
esteemed Baseball Hall of Fame logo.
course, the Hall of Fame Gallery stands as a special baseball oasis
where the plaques of all 278 Hall of Fame members line the solid,
stately oak walls. You could literally spend hours here
reading all the Hall of Famers' accomplishments on each plaque. I
personally like to focus on a few of my baseball heroes, studying their
histories and stats: Carl Yazstremski, Willie Mays, Hank Aaron and
Harmon Killebrew are a few names that come to mind.
Baseball Hall of Fame, ultimately, dispels all images of those stuffy,
boring museums we've attended in the past. There's not a
wasted space in this historic (and recently beautifully renovated)
building in the heart of one of America's most beautiful villages. It's
the only place we know where we get goosebumps upon approaching the
museum! -- EH,

The greatest compliment one
can give a bed and breakfast is looking forward to seeing its owners as
much as visiting the travel destination. We're talking here, of course,
about the Cooperstown Bed and Breakfast.
John and Linda Smirk are two of the most down-to-earth B&B
owners you will ever meet. They welcome you like a favorite
relative to their charming 1902 Victorian home -- in the heart of the
Village and walkable to many attractions. A major attraction, the
National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum, remains open in the winter,
and is about a 10-minute walk from the Cooperstown Bed and Breakfast.
guest rooms, including two suites (one with bunk beds), are filled with
old-world Victorian charm as well as amenities such as private
bathrooms, air conditioning and ceiling fans.
unforgettable breakfast buffet includes homemade scones, cinnamon buns,
waffles, sausage, bacon, cereal, yogurt, fresh fruit and juices.
Afternoon and evening refreshments include fresh baked cookies and
other baked goods, as well as fruit and cheese!
