The Baseball Americana is a special temporary Library of Congress baseball exhibit. It is housed in the Thomas Jefferson building and runs through summer 2019.
As with many of the sites in Washington DC, the Library of Congress does not charge admission. So, you can see Baseball Americana for free!
The Library of Congress baseball exhibit showcases a variety of historical documents and artifacts. Among the treasures, you’ll find items such as:
The Baseball “Magna Carta”
Early Baseball Protective Equipment
Earliest Reference to Baseball
All American Girls Professional Baseball League Exhibit
Whether you are a Baseball fan or not, I recommend visiting the Library of Congress baseball exhibit. It is fun to see these items which celebrate America’s favorite pastime!
