  • Ty Cobb: A great ballplayer and a greater Georgian. Unique collection of personal relics and preservation of Cobb's legacy. A misrepresented man in the mainstream light; this museum showcases Cobb's lasting effects that reach beyond baseball.
  • Wow, what a great museum. Staff is so knowledgeable. Had a wonderful visit and learned things about Ty Cobb I didn't know. We were in Georgia for a week, and this was one of the highlights. Would definitely make this stop again if we're ever back.
  • This is a nice little museum dedicated to the town's favorite son. It's in the lobby of a medical center, with the ticket counter and gift shop occupying the entrance and the actual museum taking up a suite. The multimedia displays are informative and there are a few Ty Cobb artifacts, but mostly just reproduction pictures and displays. It was an enjoyable stop, but some of the museum seems to be aimed at rehabilitating Cobb's reputation and a 'dirty' player.
  • One of those great places you only see by traveling the back roads!
  • Great place for the kids to learn the history of baseball.
