There are more activities to do in the Cooperstown NY area other than the Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum. There is Double Day Field, and there is a good chance you might see people playing a game on that field while you are there. There is also the Farmers Museum (which is closed Mondays) is also another great place to bring the kids.

The Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum is open every day except on Thanksgiving, Christmas Day and New Years Day. If you are going as a group, make sure to make reservations in advance and seek out any group discounts if you are eligible. I found out that reaching out ahead of time, there were options available to all visitors, if they know about them. The staff at the museum was super warm and helpful, going out of their way to give every guest an unforgettable experience.
