This small museum focuses on a group of older ballparks built before 1924. The displays are idiosyncratic but pretty great. If you are a serious baseball fan, this is a place you must visit.

For anyone with an interest in baseball history, this little museum is a must. It's got old pennants, stadium seats, photos, posters, etc from the turn of the century through the 70s. It packs a lot into a small space. Definitely worth the modest price of admission, and you'll be in and out in anywhere from 30 mins to a couple hours, depending on how much time you spend browsing. Also very close to Coors Field and tons of dining and drinking locations. So glad we found this place!

Great little museum! It is small but so much to look at. We went through it twice because I didn't want to hold up anyone else that came in after us and I knew I missed something. All items are from "early days" some items from the 60's but most of the stadium stuff is older.

If you love baseball like I do, it's definitely worth the trip. It gives a great overview of a number of the classic old ballparks with fun displays devoted to each of them (exs Fenway Park, Crosley Field, the Polo Grounds, etc).The memorabilia is excellent. It also has a section about past and current Denver baseball that's nice to see before or after a trip to Coors Field. Caution though - a very casual baseball fan may not think it worth the visit.

This was an unexpected treasure of baseball history near (1 block) Coors Field. There was a treasure trove of memorabilia packed into a small space. We were the only people there at the time and received a very informative tour from the guide and met the owner. This is a must see for any baseball fan who remembers the classic ball parks of the first half of the 20th century or wants to see how unique the parks were during that period.
