Located on Main Street in the heart of picturesque Cooperstown, New York, the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum is one of the country's major tourist destinations and is surely the best-known sports shrine in the world. Opening its doors for the first time on June 12, 1939, the Hall of Fame has stood as the definitive repository of the game's treasures and as a symbol of the most profound individual honor bestowed on an athlete. It is every fan's "Field of Dreams" with its stories,
legends and magic to be passed on from generation to generation.
The centerpiece of the museum is the historic Hall of Fame Gallery, where the plaques of every Hall of Fame member line the oak walls. The Great American Home Run Chase exhibit features record-setting artifacts from Babe Ruth and Roger Maris, as well as those from Mark McGwire and Sammy Sosa. Other permanent exhibits include The Records Room, No-Hitters, Ballparks, The World Series Room, Evolution of Equipment and many more. This truly is the Mecca of baseball.
