The Clemente Museum will hold an Open House on Friday, April 1 and Saturday, April 2. The museum is dedicated to preserving the legacy of “The Great One.” Roberto Clemente’s sports achievements (in his 18-year career, he received every possible award given in Major League Baseball), his personal life, and his humanitarian efforts are celebrated in the world’s largest exhibited collection of Clemente photographs and artifacts.

The Open House will be held in honor of Opening Weekend for the Pittsburgh Pirates. Admission will be $10.00 for adults and $5.00 for children, students, and those with Military ID. Admission for these two days will grant guests access to the entire museum. Reservations are not required.

The museum is located in Engine House 25, a renovated firehouse located in the heart of the Lawrenceville neighborhood. You can stop at Arriba, the new Tasting Room from Engine House 25 Wines and Clemente Museum gift shop, after for a glass of wine and cheese plates.
