Even though the doors to the Yogi Berra Museum & Learning Center are temporarily closed, we continue to tell Yogi Berra’s story and promote his legacy through virtual sports-based educational exhibitions and programs.
Our Current Exhibition is Now Available Virtually!
2020 marks the 100th anniversary of the Negro Leagues. In honor of this milestone, DISCOVER GREATNESS showcases 90 photographs and Negro Leagues artifacts illustrating the rich history of Black baseball from the late 1800s–1960s.
Summer Education Programs
BASEBALL & STEM : Mondays @ 11am
Inspired by the extraordinary life, athleticism and values of Hall of Fame catcher Yogi Berra, our online STEM program gets kids up and moving as they explore ways in which baseball demonstrates important concepts in science, technology, engineering and math.
DISCOVERING THE NEGRO LEAGUES: Thursdays @ 11am
This online program explores DISCOVER GREATNESS: An Illustrated History of Negro Leagues Baseball, on loan from the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum in Kansas City. Students will learn about Jim Crow, the Great Migration and their connection to the birth and growth of the Negro Leagues, and think critically about larger, ongoing issues of systemic racism and social injustice.
Virtual School Trips
The Museum is supporting at-home learning with interactive, sports-based education experiences that give students a chance to meet in real time with their teachers (and with one another,) while exploring topics in STEM, history and language arts.
For more information contact Education Director Jenny Pollack.
At-Home Learning Through Baseball!

And our plans meet NJ State and Common Core National Standards, so they're the perfect supplement to classroom curriculum.
