While the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum certainly pays homage to elite Major League players, it also honors unsung heroes of the game. While you're on the second floor, you can walk through exhibits that depict the evolution of the game from 1900 through today, including a display dedicated to the roles women have played throughout baseball's history.

When you reach the first floor, you'll also want to visit the exhibit dedicated to Baseball at the Movies, where you can view costumes worn by some of the stars of the 1992 film, A League of Their Own, which was based on the story of the first women's professional baseball league.
