Love the history, wish it was more interactive

Tips for Families

Membership does have its privileges, it gets you out of the often long lines to get in during the summer months. The fall or spring is a great time to come and avoid the more crowded times. Induction ceremonies are great to attend with children, but also a crazy time to get into the actual Hall of Fame. We have attended the ceremonies (held outside on baseball fields) but chose not to tour the Hall during the same time.

Tips for Families

Arrive early; there's a lot to see and small kids might not have the stamina to do a complete visit. For kids 6 and up, the scavenger hunt is a fantastic way to keep interest high.
