I've seen multiple reviews saying that the was figures aren't life-like, but I disagree. Of course some are better than others, but I thought that most look like the athlete depicted. There were a few pictures that were not lighted, but overall I would recommend...More

This is a wonderful experience for all ages and for all fans of the game of our national pastime. It brings you up close with all the greats of the game.

The wax museum in the center of town was a disappointment, not worth the $10. There were only about half of the figures that we thought looked like the person. It was dark and dingy in there also.

This place needs a little updating, some of the exhibits are showing their age, and they could add more to see.

None of the was figures made you think it could be an actor. While I recognized most from their uniforms many of the faces were not recognizeable on their own. I don't think this place is trying to be more than at is as it...More

We have visited the Baseball Hall of Fame many times. Each time we visit we find something new to learn from. The American Baseball Experience is one of them. If you like baseball history you will enjoy this.

We decided to check out the wax museum before the Hall of Fame. We enjoyed it but all the history was also in the Hall of Fame. If you don't care for wax figures, then just go to the Hall of Fame for even more...More

Yes, they have some bats in various colors at the museum store. There are several places on Main St. That sell bats and various items made from bats.
