We have visited the Baseball Hall of Fame many times. Each time we visit we find something new to learn from. The American Baseball Experience is one of them. If you like baseball history you will enjoy this.

We decided to check out the wax museum before the Hall of Fame. We enjoyed it but all the history was also in the Hall of Fame. If you don't care for wax figures, then just go to the Hall of Fame for even more history. But...it is interesting seeing how the wax figures are made.

So unless its raining or if you really need to kill some time maybe if not don't waste your time. Really no order to this place some of the figures you wont even know who they are. its really very randomly done and at $11plus per person not worth it at all

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

This is a very interesting museum it's kind of weird being in the area where these old timers played Baseball like Babe Ruth, Lou Gerrig, and many more.

They could make this a little more stimulating. It's very dark and their is no audio, just a bunch of wax objects in a maze. Not great for kids or young adults.

The wax figures are in bad condition. The place is dark and smells. I recommend that you avoid the Was museum, it is not worth the money. The speaker system was far too loud for some sections and you could not hear it on others.

Coopers town was a fantastic little place to visit. The water was beautiful, food was great and the hall of fame was awesome! We will definitely be back in this town.
