  • Oddly placed location, but a great collection of Cobb memorabilia and baseball history. Great to see it preserved! 
  • Stopped by here because I always wanted to visit. Small museum located in a medical building. $5.00 admission but there is a short movie about Ty Cobb's life along with awards, equipment, and pictures...  more »
  • If your into baseball history it's worth the visit, I wouldn't make a special trip to see it but if your in the area, stop in.

  • This Museum is so well done and gives you an overall view of the life of TY COBB on and off the field. The director is knowledgeable and answered all my questions with a smile. There is lots of memorabilia about the different aspects of Ty's life. And this is coming from someone who isn't much of a baseball fan.
  • Had a great experience here back in 2006. There was memorabilia that you couldn't imagine. Even his shotgun and dentures. There was also a video of an interview of him that can't be found anywhere else.
  • The museum itself is okay but the front desk can sometime have a snobby attitude but she may no longer be there
  • This is a wonderful museum highlighting the career and life of Ty Cobb also known as the Georgia Peach. Best known as the first inductee to Baseball's Hall of Fame, Ty Cobb lead a career in baseball that will unlikely be matched, even by today's standards. The short movie is well done and there is a small but nice gift shop for those who like memorabilia. It's worth a stop!
