We stopped here after seeing it on our way to a Rockies game at Coors Field and glad we did. It's not big but it has a lot to see & enjoy. It cost $10 per adult and $5 for seniors and active duty military get in for free. It's located right along Blake Street so it's real close to Coors Field.

It starts off with the old turnstile you walk through from first professional ballpark. Some of the exhibits include items from 14 different old time ballparks including Fenway & Wrigley Field. This museum is rated one of the top private collections in the country so it's a great opportunity to see history up close.

We went here before the virus so I hope the museum will be able to open back up soon.

We stumbled upon this little gem near Coors Field on a Thursday in March. The owner gave us a personal tour. He’s simply a passionate baseball fan and memorabilia collector who has made his collection public. The museum contains items that highlight the original 14 classic ballparks and includes old turn styles and ticket stubs, even a copy of Babe Ruth’s 1932 tax return! Definitely worth a visit if you’re in Denver and you love baseball.

I love baseball. So walking into this museum was like entering the mind of a kindred spirit. The total space is small, but is packed with genuine memorabilia from various historic baseball parks around the U.S. It also features photos and facts about some well-known favorite players such as Mickey Mantle and Babe Ruth. The staff obviously love being there, as they will knowledgeably talk your ear off about baseball, while also listening to your memories. If you are ever in Denver with a free hour or two, be sure to stop here. You'll be glad you did.

This was an amazing little place tucked into a building right around the corner from Coors Field. I can't imagine our visit to Denver and a Rockies game would've been the same if we had NOT visited this place! LOTS of cool history on ALL MLB teams (like sections for each team). It's not huge, so you can do an under-an-hour tour to just see the highlights or you can really get into ALL of the historical details and spend hours in there! Staff member at front desk was friendly and informative (seemed like a manager or owner, definitely loved his job!). CHECK THIS OUT!

What a treat it is to share the history of the old ballparks and baseball history. Our volunteers and owner Bruce Hellerstein spend much time researching any new information the visitors share with us. Their donations make it possible to continue talking about this love of America's favorite pass time!! Thank you!!

Being 65 years old and a lifetime baseball fan, so many of the artifacts in the museum brought back memories of reading, seeing pictures of, and imagining what those ballparks were like! So many of them were gone by the time the era of most games being televised came about. You’d see pictures of them in newspapers and magazines…but that was about it back then. How they acquired the variety of artifacts from the ballparks is amazing. It had to have been a very time-consuming and expensive journey for the museum owner! What made the visit even better were the explanations and background information that are a part of every exhibit. If you’re a baseball history fan, you could spend the entire day there. If you’re not a huge fan, I’d be surprised if you still couldn’t spend an hour or two and find it very worthwhile. What a place to visit! And the admission price is more than reasonable! I’ve been to the National Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown and it was fantastic. I’d say the same for the National Ballpark Museum.

Great place to learn some baseball history. Staff was great and very informative. I really enjoyed all the stories to go along with some of the pieces. Anybody who is a baseball fan or historian can check out this hidden treasure in Denver. Baseball more than any other sport is full of history and lore and this museum does a good job in looking WAY back on the stadiums across baseball. They even have some fun minor league memorabilia.

Looking WAY back is also fun for us, as we find and listen to stories from the visitors that are priceless! Every once in a while a visitor will suggest a very old ballpark with a history that we were unaware of which sends us on a quest to learn more baseball history! It is a great journey, thank you for your feedback!

I can’t gush enough about how wonderful my visit was. If you love history and you love baseball, you must visit here. Tucked away righ next to Coors Field and a lot of bars, this unassuming and seemingly small place packs a lot of history, treasures, and memorabilia. Raelee (Our tour guide that day) is so knowledgeable about everything that was displayed at the museum. Everywhere you turned there was some something to learn and look at.

It had a really nice section about the Denver Bears as well.

Btw, be sure to call ahead and check to make sure they’re open. I tried to visit a day earlier and they had to close earlier in the day.

The Ballpark Museum is a hidden gem for all true baseball fans. The curator has gone to great lengths to secure treasures from America’s greatest ballparks. The Museum
Is a must visit for any true respecter of the game. An unexpected surprise was seeing Babe Ruth’s 1932 Federal Income Tax Return. Well worth the time to visit. Staff is very helpful and appreciative of our visit.

We have been to Denver many times and were looking to fill about 1.5 hours one morning. We happened upon the National Ballpark Museum. Being baseball fans, we checked it out. Wow--what a find. We were transported back into the earlier days of baseball and the original ballparks. This small museum is chock full of memorabilia from days gone by. A real treat. The volunteer we met was extremely knowledgable and we spent a wonderful time talking about baseball. In the shadow of Coors Field, well worth a visit.

This is a small but amazing museum filled with all sorts of ballpark artifacts and memorabilia. Among many other treasures, there are seats, turnstiles, and bricks from the classic parks built between 1891-1923.

As a Dodger fan, I loved seeing the section on Ebbets Field, including an original baseball-shaped lamp from the rotunda. It was also a pleasure to meet Bruce, the founder, who is a real gentleman and happy to share his vast knowledge.

If you are a baseball fan, this wonderful museum is an absolute must-visit!
