Instituted in 1958 by the Cincinnati Reds franchise to pay homage to the city’s home baseball team, the Cincinnati Reds Hall of Fame and Museum celebrates the greatness achieved by the team players, managers and executives, as well as preserve history and inspire upcoming generations.
Located next to the Great American Ball Park, the museum aims to bring baseball alive through unique exhibitions, displays and memorabilia from the past, present and future. Spanning more than 15,000 square feet (1,400 square meters), vast exhibition halls over two floors show priceless baseball items such as trophies from the World Series, MVP awards of Johnny Bench and Joe Morgan, and a scorecard from baseball's first professional team - the 1869 Cincinnati Red Stockings, amongst other treasures.
Enjoy a guided ‘behind-the-scenes’ tour of the Scotts Great American Ball Park, where you check out the home plate, sit in the dugout and visit the expansive Great American Ball Park Press Box. You can also join one of the many special events the museum holds throughout the year, such as player appearances, speaker series, and other activities.
