Frequently Asked Questions
Does my ticket for Hands On History include a ticket to the game?

Where can I park?
The Yankees neither control nor operate the parking lots and garages surrounding the Stadium and are not responsible for setting parking lot rates, refund policies, rules and/or procedures.

Where do I enter Yankee Stadium for Hands On History?
Hands On History guests should enter Yankee Stadium at Gate 6, located on the corner of East 161st Street and River Avenue. Guests will present their Hands On History ticket and be granted entry into the Great Hall to complete the check-in process. The program will begin from there.

May I select which artifacts are available in my program?
All artifacts are selected in advance of each program by event staff. Please email us at [email protected] in advance with any questions. All artifacts are subject to availability.
What is your rainout policy?
Rain or extreme weather conditions are always a possibility with an outdoor Stadium. If there is inclement weather on the day of your Hands On History event, the program will still begin on time, unless otherwise announced. If the game is eventually postponed for a later date or cancelled, Hands On History guests will be subject to the same rainout/reschedule policy as all other Yankee Stadium ticket holders. This means that your ticket is valid for the make-up date as determined by both teams and Major League Baseball.
Is photography permitted during Hands On History?
Guests may bring their personal cameras and take photographs throughout the program. In certain areas of the New York Yankees Museum presented by Bank of America, flash photography may be prohibited. Otherwise, we encourage guests to capture their participation in Hands On History with as many photos as possible. In terms of types of cameras allowed, single-frame flash photography is permitted as are extended-length zoom lenses provided they do not interfere with the game or event or other guests' enjoyment of the game or event. Mono/tripods, other professional camera equipment, movie cameras and any other equipment designed for the sole purpose of video and/or audio recording are not permitted. Guests are not permitted to transmit and/or stream or aid in transmitting and/or streaming any account, description, picture, video, audio, reproduction or other information about any games or events.
