Opening Date To Be Announced
The Jackie Robinson Museum is a project of the Jackie Robinson Foundation, a public, not-for-profit national organization founded by Rachel Robinson in 1973. The foundation serves as a vehicle to perpetuate the legacy of Robinson, the player who broke the color line in Major League Baseball in 1947 when he began playing for the Brooklyn Dodgers. Robinson was also a committed campaigner for civil rights, and his Foundation assists increasing numbers of minority youths through the granting of four-year scholarships for higher education.
The Museum will be a state-of-the-art, vibrant, interactive place that tells the story of Jackie Robinson in the context of the world in which Jackie grew up. It will also tell the story of some other pioneers who worked alongside Jackie, shared his challenges, and, like him, changed this nation forever.
