COOPERSTOWN, NY – A visit to the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum provides an inside look at baseball history unlike any other.

Coming in the spring of 2012, fans can even delve deeper into the Museum’s collections and archives through an exclusive program known as the “VIP Experience.”

Beginning in late February, Cooperstown visitors will have six opportunities to take a behind-the-scenes look at baseball’s most honored cathedral. Each VIP Experience provides a unique, personal look at the Hall of Fame and its collections, through a package available only through participating Cooperstown accommodations.

Dates for 2012 VIP Experiences include:

  • Feb. 23-24
  • March 22-23
  • March 29-30
  • April 12-13
  • May 10-11
  • May 17-18

Two VIP Experience programs have special themes, with the Feb. 23-24 event going inside the Museum’s education program offerings, while the March 22-23 Experience will feature a spotlight on Baseball in New York.

A perfect holiday gift, the two-day event includes a Hall of Fame Sustaining Membership ($100 value), exclusive after-hours access to the Museum, a library archive tour, a Museum collections artifact presentation and a private reception.

Available for purchase through select Cooperstown Chamber of Commerce accommodations, the Hall of Fame VIP Experience makes a perfect get-away for you and your family or a great holiday gift for someone special.
