B's Ballpark Museum
The Ballpark Museum was recognized by Smithsonian Books as one of the top 21 first private collections in the world. The Museum prides itself on one-of-a-kind treasures, including those from all of the major league teams, as well as Colorado baseball from the Denver Bears/Bears Stadium and Colorado Rockies/Coors Field.
Bruce Hellerstein went from collecting baseball cards to creating a world-class museum recognized by Smithsonian Institute. He started displaying his collection in the basement of his house.
The original goal of the National Ballpark Museum was to concentrate on ballpark memorabilia. Bruce meticulously acquired artifacts, bricks, postcards, jerseys, books, pictures, and more. The collection grew to house seats from all the classic ballparks. To this day, National Ballpark Museum possibly has the best collection of seats assembled in one place.
The collections grew to include one-of-a-kind items, such as tickets and programs from the opening and closing of ballparks and All-Star games.
The museum is located near Coors Field at 1940 Blake Street and is open 2 hours before Colorado Rockies home games and on Saturdays from 12pm-6pm. Closed Sundays and Mondays. Visit www.ballparkmuseum.com.
