If you are a fan of Minnesota baseball then you want to visit the Baseball Hall of Fame Museum of Minnesota – Minneapolis, Minnesota founded by Ray Crump in 1986. Ray was originally a batboy for the Washington Senators. Then the Senators moved to Minnesota and became the Minnesota Twins. Ray came with them and kept collecting memorabilia from the club through out his tenure with them. Following his retirement he wanted to share the items and stories with the public so he created the museum.
The best part of it is it is free to attend so every boy and girl (and adult) that dreams about baseball will be able to come and view the collection of wonderful memories. There are World Series bats, (the Twins played in the World Series 3 times, 1965, 1987, and 1991. They won in 1987 and 1991.) There are jerseys, autographed baseballs and photos, clubhouse books, displays on how to make baseball bats and gloves, and a wide array of other things.
There are also collectibles from Elvis Presley and memorabilia from the Beatles trip to Minnesota in 1965.
One of the cases is dedicated to Kirby Puckett who will be remembered by Minnesota fans and others for years to come. You will also see Harmon Killebrew, Tony Oliva and Rod Carew uniforms and locker room signs.
The Museum is free. It is located in a room adjacent to the store selling Minnesota Twins and Viking memorabilia. It is located next to the Metrodome in Minneapolis, and is a self guided tour.
