Spend an Unforgettable Night in the Museum with Extra Innings Overnights Program

Children Ages 7-12 Can Sleep among the Legends in the Famous Plaque Gallery

February 21, 2012

COOPERSTOWN, NY – The Plaque Gallery at the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum remains the game’s sacred ground, where past and present come together for fans of all ages.

This spring, thanks to the Museum’s Extra Innings Overnights program, the Plaque Gallery will also host the future as grade-school children spend a memorable night among the legendary stars of the game.

Open to both Museum members and youth groups, Extra Innings Overnights is one of the Museum’s most popular programs. Upcoming dates include March 9-10 and March 23-24. Children ages 7-12 and their parents can sleep in the Hall of Fame Plaque Gallery among the plaques honoring Babe Ruth, Ted Williams, Jackie Robinson and the rest of baseball’s greats. The evening includes all-access to the Museum’s public areas after-hours, special hands-on programs throughout the Museum, and a late-night snack and a movie in the Bullpen Theater.

A light breakfast is provided the following morning, and all junior participants receive a Hall of Fame knapsack filled with mementos of the evening. The program costs $49.95 for juniors and $39.95 for their adult guardians.
