The Clemente Museum will hold an Open House on Saturday, May 27th from Noon until 4:00 p.m. The museum is dedicated to preserving the legacy of “The Great One.” Roberto Clemente’s sports achievements, 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 have a special exhibit of Clemente Family memorabilia. As seen in the Post-Gazette, the Clemente Family is set to auction off their collection of memorabilia this July at the All-Star FanFest during Major League Baseball’s All-Star week in Miami. According to the article, “the family kept many of the items that held sentimental value but wanted to share pieces of his legacy with people who still support him.” A portion of those items will be available to view on Saturday.

This will be a once in a lifetime opportunity to see such items as:

  • 1971 World Series MVP Award
  • Hall of Fame Presentational Plaque
  • 1966 Road Jersey
  • 3000th Hit Presentational Vase
  • Custom made suit (a must see!)
  • 1964 Silver Bat

before they are auctioned off!

Reservations are not required. Admission will be $10.00 for adults and $5.00 for children, students, and those with Military ID.

The museum is located in Engine House 25, a renovated firehouse located in the heart of the Lawrenceville neighborhood.
