Visitor Information


In response to COVID-19 and MLB’s temporary delay of the season, we are postponing our Annual Opening Day Block party.

Our Opening Day party will be held on the date of the rescheduled season home opener, whenever that may be. All tickets purchased for the Block Party will be honored for the rescheduled date.

While we understand the inconvenience, we ask you to consider leaving your purchase in escrow with the museum to be applied to the rescheduled Opening Day party.

Until the season opens at home we will follow our off-season schedule: Tuesday-Sunday from 10AM-5PM.  Our schedule may change due to developments in the COVID-19 situation.

We will actively monitor the developing situation as the health and safety of our visitors is our highest priority.  Please visit our website at or our Facebook page for updates.
