New York Yankees Museum Bronx Reviews
Worth it for baseball fans, even if not Yankees fan Jul 06, 2013
The New York Yankees Museum is located inside Yankee Stadium, and is only open during game time and those who take a stadium tour. Worth checking out, even if you are not a Yankees fan.
Basically, this museum is mainly about the Yankees, and a little history about the most storied franchise in baseball. There are displays on the most well-known players that ever worn a Yankees uniform, like Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, Roger Maris, and Mickey Mantle. Also, are the different caps from different eras, along with the World Series trophies and replica of the World Series rings.
When entering the place, the first thing you may notice, is a wall with signatures of various Yankees. And on the other side, are all the signed baseballs, by players who have worn a Yankees uniform, whether for a day or a decade. If looking for one by a particular player, you can ask a staff member to help find it for you. And not just players, but also managers and even the Boss himself, George Steinbrenner.
There are other features in the museum, enough to keep one occupied for at least 30 minutes. And a nice place to cool off, on a very hot day.
Keep in mind, if you want to see it before the game, get there as early as possible. There is a line that forms, as there are a limited amount of people allowed in the museum. During game time, it is less crowded, and you can walk right in.
The museum can only be seen on game day or a stadium tour. And on game day, the museum closes after the 8th inning.
The museum is definitely worth it for baseball fans, and yes, even interesting enough for those that don’t care for the Yankees at all.
