“Spring break”
Reviewed 26 April 2014

This is a much better museum than the JFK Museum which is housed in the same building. We were sorely disappointed with the JFK Museum but was pleasantly surprised to find we liked the Cape League much better. Better displays and exhibits. We covered this basement room in 1/2 hr.

“Definitely worth a visit”
Reviewed 18 April 2014

Admission to this museum is free with admission to the Kennedy museum upstairs, and it's definitely worth taking in. A surprising number of MLB greats have played in the Cape League on their way to the majors. There is lots of memorabilia about the various Cape teams, set in a large room with astroturf carpet marked with base lines. In another room, a one-hour video about the 2003 plays on a continuous loop. It was so engrossing that we ended up watching the whole thing.

“Baseball History!”
Reviewed 2 February 2014 via mobile

Any big baseball fan would enjoy a quick trip to the Cape Cod League Hall of Fame. You will be surprised at the number of MLB hall of farmers got their start here. The museum is divided up by team and it's not very big so a quick visit is a great idea. Catch a game nearby to really kick up the experience.

“Cape Cod League Hall of Fame”
Reviewed 21 November 2013

This was surprisingly entertaining...especially if you are a Red Sox fan, although players from other teams got their careers started here. It has a great layout for viewing their displays including astro turf floors that give it great ambiance and an engrossing video on one season in their recent history. And it's free with the JFK Museum.

“So many Major Leaguers”
Reviewed 30 October 2013

I had no clue that so many Major Leaguers came through the Cape. That was the most fascinating part of this museum for me. It's not large but it was fascinating to see names like Ron Darling and Lou Lamoriello.
