The original goal of the National Ballpark Museum was to concentrate on ballpark memorabilia. Bruce Hellerstein meticulously acquired artifacts, bricks, postcards, jerseys, books, pictures and more. The collection grew to house seats from all the classic ballparks.

Some of his most significant collectibles include:

The light fixtures from the marble rotunda entrance to Ebbets Field, the home of the Brooklyn Dodgers

The arched window and cornerstone from Forbes Field, the home of the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Tribute to CO Baseball history

Autographed baseballs and bats

And much more...

The legacy of National Ballpark Museum is to pass on the passion and love for our National Pastime and its ballparks.

May all your baseball dreams come true!

  • Awesome little museum full of a bunch of awesome baseball memorabilia. Enjoyed this place before catching another game at Coors Field. Super friendly staff!
  • This museum has a ton of great memorabilia documenting old ballparks. The staff is very friendly and has thorough knowledge about players, teams, and stadiums alike. Definitely worth a visit, especially if you're going to Coors Field.
  • If you love baseball and you're in Denver, check out the ballpark museum! It's got so much stuff its overwhelming. The tours are usually unguided, but we had an employee come around and highlight and explain some of the stuff which was amazing. There is a good mix between ballpark and player history to be seen, several Babe Ruth balls, a personal tax return from the Babe, and all kinds of neat stuff. Take all the pictures you want too, so you can relive the memory forever!
  • The museum is fairly small, but has tons of memorabilia and just a lot of cool and interesting things from Babe Ruth’s tax returns to original uniforms of players and ushers. The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable about baseball and all of the ballparks.
  • I came across this museum by sheer chance as I was walking back from Coors Field and it left me absolutely mesmerized! It's a small place but within it sits memorabilia from floor to ceiling dedicated to the original ballparks, bats from some of baseball's greats and beautiful miniatures. I'm a public historian and have high standards for museums and this spot met them all!
