This museum honors Roberto Clemente, the Major League Baseball right fielder of the Pittsburgh Pirates and Hall of Famer. The museum was established in July 2007 by photographer Duane Rieder in the former Engine House No. 25 in the Lawrenceville section of Pittsburgh. Rieder met Clemente's family in 1994 during a photoshoot. Years later, his personal Clemente collection, with help from Clemente's immediate family, would serve as the basis for the museum. The museum features thousands of items of Clemente memorabilia, including professional sports photography, Clemente family snapshots, old uniforms, gloves, balls, bats, and seats from Forbes Field. A neat touch - you may spot the owner churning grapes in the wine cellar in the basement! They sell great wines to raise money for the upkeep of the museum. Parking is available onsite for no charge.
