Jackie Robinson Museum

The life and legacy of the social activist, business leader, and sports legend. A witness, participant, and advocate.

The Jackie Robinson Museum in New York City realizes the Jackie Robinson Foundation’s mission to preserve and honor the extraordinary life of one of the most important Americans of the 20th century. The museum tells the stories of Robinson’s achievements, as well as those of the racism, violence, social obstacles, and personal struggles that he and his wife Rachel, who guided the vision of the museum, overcame while building his legacy.

The museum is a 20,000 square foot exhibition space, with a combination of interactive experiences, traditional exhibit design, historical artifacts, and memorabilia, where visitors can explore Robinson’s groundbreaking impact on business, society, politics, entertainment, and sports. In different ways, each of the spaces explore and celebrate his civil rights leadership, commitment and action for social justice, athletic milestones, and continuing impact.
