Chicago Baseball Museum Mission

The Chicago Baseball Museum mission is to collect and preserve artifacts as well as document, research and interpret historical events for the advancement of local baseball and the education and enjoyment of its diverse fan base. We will strive to become the central network for the sport in the Chicago area in the form of exhibits, publications, conferences, online services and other activities.

The museum was founded in 2008 as a privately funded, non-profit group. As a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, we are eligible to receive tax-deductible contributions.
