Baseball Hall of Fame - estimated length of visit?

Jump to last reply

As may be evident from my screen name, I'm a baseball fan. I'm going camping in NY state with my dad (also a life long baseball fan) and my 9.5 twins in July. Our itinerary brings us near Cooperstown so I'd like to surprise my Dad with a visit to the National Baseball Hall of Fame.

Anyone have a suggestion as to how long we should budget (in hours) for a visit to the Hall? It's open until 9pm during the summer, so hopefully we can visit as a break on travel day (It seems to be about half way between the campsite we're leaving - near Lake Placid - and Corning NY.... in theory we could leave the campsite around 11am, stop somewhere for lunch around 1pm, hit the road by 2pm, arrive in Cooperstown between 3-4pm, and visit the Hall for 4-5hrs including dinner. One of the best cafeteria meals I've ever had was at a Baseball Hall of Fame exhibit at a museum, where they featured hot dogs from baseball parks around the major leagues!)

Thoughts welcomed!
