Baseball Hall of Fame, New York


This sports museum is a stadium-size, multimedia showcase full of the memorabilia of baseball's greats. Located in Cooperstown, it is a magnet for Little Leaguers who imagine being inducted into the Hall of Fame's hallowed halls. Video screens showcase famous plays from memorable games and there plenty of hands-on and batter's up exhibits for kids. "Baseball at the Movies" documents more than 150 Hollywood films about the sport. A permanent exhibit about Hank Aaron opened in 2009 to much acclaim.
