  • What an awesome experience! My kids have never been more inspired to go out and play ball! The tour was impressive. The attention to detail in the process was amazing to witness. It was cool to walk through a working factory while learning a great deal about baseball history. There were additional demonstrations in the museum portion as well and there were plenty of hands on opportunities for all. You could feel the differences in the wood, the cut, and even the finish of the different bats. At the end of the tour we were all given mini bats that were around $13 in the store! They have a generous military discount as well! The beautiful building and the street around it had a historic appeal. There was another museum just across the street. This was a gem of a find. My boys picked up some impressive souvenirs and are psyched to tell their friends about this cool experience.
  • Great tour, very informative. Gift shop reasonably priced and loved the exhibits. Really neat to see all the bat signatures on the wall. Well worth the price of admission. No photos from inside though so I got one of the horse out front!Well worth the price of admission. No photos from inside though so I got one of the horse out front! Parking is available within a block behind the building at 2 private lots for $7-8 all day.
