Montclair, NJ — “You can be anything you want to be, and that’s what this museum is all about,” David Kaplan, Director of Programs at the Yogi Berra Museum and Learning Center, said.
The Museum is located on the campus of Montclair State University and towers over Yogi Berra Stadium, which hosts the minor league New Jersey Jackals, along with the Montclair State University Red Hawks baseball team.
The museum, founded on December, 4 1998, was originally intended to be a gallery commemorating Berra’s career and numerous achievements. Since then, the museum has expanded from a tribute honoring one of baseball’s most legendary figures to a learning facility. The museum’s programs focus on many diverse issues from math and science, to sports media and societal debates.
With the recently opened exhibit “Saving Face” that runs until October 4, the Yogi Berra Museum and Learning Center is open seven days a week. This new exhibit showcases some of the most historic masks worn in the sports of both baseball and hockey. Admission to the museum is $6 for adults, $4 for students with ID (free for MSU students) and free for children under five. After all, as Yogi once famously said, “A nickel ain’t worth a dime anymore.”
