Your kids have a place at the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum, an educational not-for-profit institution. Baseball can make learning fun for fans of all ages. Our programs go beyond family programs that make visiting the Museum fun and interesting.

Dedicated to life-long learning, the Museum has developed educational programs for every stage of life, from school kids to professors, from casual fans to serious researchers and baseball professionals.

The next best thing to visiting the Baseball Hall of Fame is participating in a live virtual educational program. The Hall of Fame's award winning program transports the wonders of Cooperstown to your very own classroom. Baseball is used as the backdrop to help your students discover objectives in diverse topics like mathematics, geography, civil rights history, women's history, economics and more!

How were women’s rights in the past different than how things are today? Students will explore similarities and differences while examining the clothing and tools used throughout history.
