About Hands on History
Hands On History offers an unprecedented opportunity for guests to touch historic Yankees artifacts. Participants connect with Yankees history through game-used bats, jerseys, baseballs, World Series rings and more from Yankees legends, past and present.
This exclusive program takes place within the New York Yankees Museum presented by Bank of America. Each session begins approximately 90 minutes before gates open to the public for a game. The pregame experience is led by our knowledgeable Museum Curator, who shares entertaining stories while guests hold baseball's most treasured artifacts. All guests enjoy a detailed tour of the Museum's rotating exhibits. Photography is welcomed and encouraged during the program.
Hands On History is now available for private in-suite experiences. If you would like to have Hands On History in your suite during a game, please contact (646) 977-8400 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for pricing and availability.
