I am going to be in Cleveland on business in a few weeks and I was thinking about checking it out.

I've heard mixed reviews.

I've been to the MLB HOF (twice) and it was definitely worth the time IMO.

I have not been, but I'd like to go.

I can't imagine that you would be disappointed.

Yes, its little south of Cleveland but worth it once to say you have been, but not as good as MLB.

I went back in 2012 and even though it was undergoing renovation it was worth the stop over.

Yep - did a major jaunt one summer while stationed in D.C. Headed north and hit Pennsylvania Dutch Country, did all of the miniature train layouts, rode the Strasburg RR to Paradise; drove on to Cooperstown and rented a beautiful cabin on the lake there and toured the MLB HOF on two consecutive days; on to Niagara Falls (Canadian side); and back by Canton to visit the NFL Hall of Fame. Probably the best overall family vacation trip ever. We were not as impressed with the NFL Hall of Fame as we were with Cooperstown, but we were seeing it at the end of a two week trip, and by then I had a stinker of a sinus infection (but I can brag on the Canton hospital - received fast and superb treatment there as a walk-in). Canton is close to Ground Zero for Pro Football, of course - not just home of the Canton Bulldogs, but surrounded by other towns which had their own pro or semi-pro teams - great local rivalries. The NFL Hall of Fame is very nice and definitely worth a visit, just perhaps not quite as much fun as the MLB Hall of Fame, which is just chock full of displays and exhibits - the NFL model doesn't have quite the "WOW" factor. Just IMHO, of course!!! R/TLM

I've been. I was underwhelmed. It seemed weird to me the amount of attention paid to the Canton Bulldogs by the NFL HOF.

Cooperstown is better. Heck, Williamsport is better.

Check out the rock and roll hall of fame in Cleveland. It’s pretty good.

Been there twice. Highly recommended.***

The only exhibit there you need to see is the one for Clemson's Brian Dawkins;

Don't waste any time looking for the Coot's HOFers. There aren't any.

I was in Cleveland a couple of years ago. Took in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame one day and the NFL HOF the next. Enjoyed both but the NFL hall paled in comparison. There are only so many old jerseys that will impress you, especially after you've seen the original hand written lyrics to "Purple Haze."

I'll say this....check it out while you're in the vicinity especially if you don't go into the area very often. The only other HOFs I've been to are the College (when it was in South Bend) and NASCAR and, to me, they're hard to compare. It's been a few years since I've been to the NFL's but I enjoyed it.

I went to watch Dan Marino get inducted in 2005. I loved it, definitely worth visiting.
