Right in the heart of Cooperstown, the Hall of Fame's collections contain more than 35,000 three-dimensional artifacts, among them Joe DiMaggio's locker, seats from Brooklyn's Ebbets Field, the well-worn original baseball made at Doubleday's behest, 5,000 other balls associated with significant players or moments, and 130,000 rare baseball cards. Of course, there's also a bronze plaque for each member of the Hall, detailing their career and achievements.

Established in 1939, the museum documents the history of our nations' pastime. Children will enjoy the Sandlot Kids' Club -- an interactive, educational program the includes a height chart of famous players in the major league, the Negro leagues and the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League. Families enjoy the interactive literacy corner called "What's On Next" and a 37-inch LCD screen featuring video programs such as Curious George Plays Baseball, narrated by Hall of Famer Brooks Robinson.
