We are a mother and daughter who both love to write. We decided to start this blog so we could spend time together doing something
we both love and share it with you. We specialize in reviewing fun places to go and fun things to do, but we talk a little bit about everything.
We would love to hear your views too.

Where-To-Go Wednesday - The Yogi Berra Museum and Learning Center

What: The Yogi Berra Museum and Learning Center
         

Where:  8 Yogi Berra Drive
              Little Falls, NJ
             (on the campus of Montclair State University

Who: Ages 9 and up and perhaps some younger children who are particularly interested in baseball

Our view: The Yogi Berra Museum is like a mini baseball hall of fame. It is great for kids who might not yet have the attention span to visit the actual Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown. If you are a fan of Yogi Berra, the Yankees, or just baseball in general, this is the place for you. Here you can see many photos and artifacts including championship rings and sometimes even a World Series trophy or two. There is also a screening room which shows baseball related features, such as, Ken Burns' Baseball,  the documentary. Films run when the museum is open. The museum is also host to various special events and  during the summer holds baseball and softball camps for kids on the nearby fields of Montclair State University. The New Jersey Jackals of the Can-Am Independent Professional Baseball League also play their games in a field located directly behind the museum. The Jackals season runs from mid May to mid September. The museum is open Wednesday to Sunday from 12:00 to 5:00 except on holidays. The cost is $6.00 for adults, $4.00 for students under 18. Special events and camps are priced differently. Museum Memberships for age 18 and younger are available for $20.00 for one year or $35.00 for two.
