The Shoeless Joe Jackson Museum is located in the beautiful West End of Greenville, SC. When you come to visit the museum, you will actually be visiting the home that Shoeless Joe Jackson lived in with his wife, Kate, until his death in 1951. In 2006, the home of Joe Jackson was dismantled, moved three miles, and reassembled on Field Street in the historic West End of Greenville, SC, directly across the street from Fluor Field, home the Greenville Drive, a minor-league division of the Boston Red Sox. In July 2007, the house was deeded to the Shoeless Joe Jackson Museum and Baseball Library foundation. On June 21, 2008, fans celebrated the dedication and grand opening of the museum! The not-for-profit museum displays records, artifacts, photographs, film and other items of interest associated with the historic life and baseball career of Shoeless Joe Jackson. A book collection related to baseball and its role in American culture is housed in Joe's former trophy room. Donations of books have been made by baseball enthusiasts from across America. The house number is 356, a reminder that Joe’s lifetime batting average was .356, the third highest in baseball history after Ty Cobb and Rogers Hornsby.The museum is FREE to all and there is also free on-site parking behind the museum! We also have a gift shop that accepts cash only. Come to see us & hang out at Shoeless Joe's house for a while! Our all-volunteer staff would love to give you a tour! Our passion is to educate old and new fans alike about one of the greatest baseball players in history!

Even a person with only a casual interest in baseball will enjoy this gem of a museum. Adjacent to beautiful Fluor Field, the house was moved to this location about 12 years ago. Shoeless Joe had the third all-time highest batting average in major league baseball and unfortunately will not get into the Hall of Fame. His story is a... More

The home of Shoeless Joe is a must see for baseball fans visiting Greenville. It is located across the street from Fluor Field and it is free. The home is maintained as a museum by volunteers and is filled with memorabilia. The volunteer guides were very friendly and informative. This is a quick thing to do and requires about an... More

It's a small museum but it's worth it if you like baseball history and are near the area. I'm not sure I would go out of my way but again, if baseball is your thing that I would say this might be a must see destination to round out your baseball history.

I didn't know much about Shoeless Joe but I am glad we stopped here on our way out of Greenville today. The volunteers have done an incredible job of restoring Joe's house and the displays and memorabilia is top notch. Be sure to sign the petition to have him in the baseball hall of fame, where he belongs.

We would not have known of this museum but for stumbling upon it while attending a game at Fluor Field. Luckily our game was Friday night because the museum is only open every Saturday 10-2, staffed by dedicated volunteers (other times by appointment I was told, just call) This is Joe Jackson's house he built & lived in during his...

The home is small and has limited hours, but is a fun place to visit if you are a baseball fan and have any knowledge of Shoeless Joe. The docent was interesting and a wealth of knowledge. The kitchen in the house had many old items that brought back many memories of life in the early 50s. It was also... More

Well done little museum and the couple who were running it were very enthusiastic fans. The little house was Joe Jackson's home for last 10 years of his life and held many mementos of his years in baseball. Right across the street from Flour Field and well worth a stop.

This home show just how humble a profession baseball used to be before television and multimillion dollar contracts. There is a great baseball library and collection of memorabilia.

It was advertised as open all week but when we got there on Thursday it was closed and we were told it is open only on Saturdays. Sad.
