Fees

In line with the values that he stood for, Yogi always meant for his museum to have an impact on all kids, regardless of their social or economic backgrounds. In support of this legacy of acceptance and inclusion, the Yogi Berra Museum & Learning Center holds a policy that no school or group will be turned away by an inability to pay for our programs. Our education programming is therefore offered at low cost for all students in grades 3-12.
