Located on Main Street in the heart of picturesque Cooperstown, the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum is one of the country’s most popular destinations and is surely the best-known sports shrine in the world. The Museum opened 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 Baseball Hall of Fame’s mission is to preserve history, honor excellence and connect generations.
The National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum is an independent, non-profit educational institution dedicated to fostering an appreciation of the historical development of Baseball and its impact on our culture by collecting, preserving, exhibiting and interpreting its collections for a global audience as well as honoring those who have made outstanding contributions to our National Pastime.
