    I was impressed with the amount of information and items on display. You could get up close and actually touch some of the items. The short video about Ty Cobb was wonderful.  more »

    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
