Wow! What a great time. Loved all the exhibits. Especially those about St. Louis Cardinals. There are quite a few Cardinals in the Hall and the exhibits were very nice. All in all one the best hall of fame I have visited.

The Museum didn’t disappoint. Great exhibits, very interactive. Museum addressed tough topics such as PED’s, anti-trust suit, the Black Sox scandal, women and baseball and Pete Rose (affect of gambling on baseball). The section on Latinos demonstrates the influence Latinos are having on today’s game....More

You can make it in one day if you come tight when it opens. However you can only read and absorb for a certain period before your mind cant do more! We spent six hours.
