A great museum that is well laid out, has many interesting items and a terrific film that is very informative. If you think that you know the story of Ty Cobb and his life, you might be surprised when you learn actual facts supported by research. Visit this museum if you are a true baseball fan and want to be educated about the best player of all time. The staff are very friendly and helpful.

The only reason I gave one star is so I could leave a review. They don't like poor people to be there. They like to profile us & falsely accus people of wrong doing. I will never recommend this sorry place. Bunch of stuck up snobs.
