The glass palace honoring a Yankee great has just been named the best designed museum in N.J.

A museum celebrating the late legendary Yankees catcher Yogi Berra has earned top recognition for its design and the glass-box atrium that greets passers-by on the Montclair State University campus.

Architectural Digest named the Yogi Berra Museum & Learning Center the best-designed museum in New Jersey, ranking it along with other nationally recognized buildings like the Frank Lloyd Wright’s Guggenheim Museum in New York City.

The Yogi Berra museum underwent a nine-month $3.5 million renovation in 2009 designed by Ikon 5 Architects.

“We’re very proud of that and feel wonderful about it,” Joe Tattoni, the design principal on the project, said. “It’s a small museum that not too many people know about but its mission is really important and it’s very unique to the state.”
