Yogi Berra’s values, extraordinary accomplishments and lifelong commitment to the education of young people are the inspiration and foundation of the Yogi Berra Museum & Learning Center. Since officially opening its doors on Dec. 4, 1998, with students and teachers from the Bradford Academy in Montclair being the first public visitors, the YBMLC has become a hugely popular destination for sports fans and educators alike.
It is the New York metropolitan area’s premier sports education center. The YBMLC is an engaging walk through the life and career of one of the most beloved and enduring sports figures of all time – as well as the most quoted American. From growing up in the Great Depression to his service during World War II to his legendary career as catcher of the Yankees’ dynasty from the late 1940s to early ’60s, Yogi’s values and character have made him the great American success story.
The Yogi Berra Museum & Learning Center – which empowers students through character-based programs – is a poignant reminder to young people that they, too, can be anything they want to be.
