I enjoyed this place. If you visit, I highly recommend sitting and watching the bloopers video. It’s well worth it. It had me laughing out loud at times. The wax figures are good but not amazing. I did enjoy reading all the plaques, especially the...More

Might be interesting to some, but my son, a baseball fan, spent about 15 minutes, and said it was overpriced for what they had. Dad did not bother, after reading the partial list of wax figures. More of a store selling tourist merchandise than a...More

The museum was very small with only 15 or 20 displays. Kind of expensive for the amount of material, but still very neat with some of the greats cast in wax.

The figures are great, but you can walk through the entire thing in about 10 minutes. Took that long for someone to come out of the store and sell us tickets. Loved to Two Georges

How this place was decided to put on the same street as the hall of fame, I don't know. Half of them are melting and the other half are designed very poorly that my 2 year old cousin could have done it. A lot of...More

We visited Cooperstown on a very hot day and the wax museum was a good inside activity. Some of the figures were well done (Babe Ruth, Catfish Hunter) but others were questionable (Kevin Costner). I thought the place was really dark and dreary - maybe...More

I've seen multiple reviews saying that the was figures aren't life-like, but I disagree. Of course some are better than others, but I thought that most look like the athlete depicted. There were a few pictures that were not lighted, but overall I would recommend...More

We paid about $12 to get into the Heroes of Baseball Wax Museum and it wasn’t worth it. Although some of the exhibits are nice, like the one for Roberto Clemente, the rest are well, meh. Most of the exhibits don’t look like the player...More

This is a wonderful experience for all ages and for all fans of the game of our national pastime. It brings you up close with all the greats of the game.

The wax museum in the center of town was a disappointment, not worth the $10. There were only about half of the figures that we thought looked like the person. It was dark and dingy in there also.

Yes, they have some bats in various colors at the museum store. There are several places on Main St. That sell bats and various items made from bats.
