The shrine to America's national pastime is a grand slam featuring nearly 40,000 artifacts, 500,000 photographs and 3 million books and documents that tell the story of baseball's greatest players, teams and moments throughout history.
Opened in 1930 by Cooperstown philanthropist, Stephen C. Clark, the three-story museum includes a timeline, from the game's roots in the 1840s to present day, with special exhibits about 19th century baseball, the Negro Leagues, women and Latin American players. Babe Ruth's bat from his record-setting 60th home run in 1927, Hank Aaron's uniform from his 715th career home run, and a Hall of Fame gallery honoring top players, managers, umpires and executives are among the major-league attractions.
