Cincinnati Reds Hall Of Fame & Museum

Located just outside of Great American Ball Park, the museum is dedicated to the oldest professional baseball team.  The Hall of Fame and Museum tells the history of the Cincinnati Reds from the formation of the ball club in 1869 to the present.  Inside you will find memorabilia and trophies from their World Series victories in 1919, 1940, The Big Red Machine of 1975 and 1976, and the 1990 champions.  There is a Hall of Records that includes a 50-foot-high "wall of balls" containing 4,256 balls – the number of hits by Pete Rose.  A large window overlooks the “Rose” garden with 4,192 roses and one white rose marking the exact spot where the record breaking hit landed at the former Riverfront Stadium.  The Hall of Fame gallery is dedicated to the great players from the team like Johnny Bench, Frank Robinson, Joe Morgan, Tony Perez, Edd Roush, Barry Larking, Eric Davis, Ted Kluszewski, George Foster, and many more.  The museum features jerseys from past players, photos, and videos as well as many interactive features and special exhibits.
