Big League Fun

Now open through April 30 – take the family out to the ball game!

Get in the game in Big League Fun, a new traveling exhibit that will immerse you in the exciting world of baseball!

The 2,000 square-foot hands-on experience features fun activities, simulated game experiences, and trivia challenges that promote important educational concepts for children and engage fans of all ages. From Spring Training to the World Series, explore the ins and outs of baseball season. Exhibit activities emphasize the science and math behind the sport, reflect national academic standards for school-age children and support developmental milestones set by the National Association for the Education of Young Children.

Test your skills!
Get tips for proper pitching, throwing, fielding, hitting and base-running. Head to the bullpen and pitch into the strike zone; perfect your swing and step up to the plate; lead off, run to second or back to the bag; throw from the infield or outfield with simulated plays; and grab a glove for catching practice.

Explore the world of professional baseball.
Choose your player position and jersey number, add your name and snap your photo in front of a baseball card backdrop. Pretend to be the announcer and deliver the play-by-play using real game clips and sound effects. Learn about the teams that make up Major League Baseball, vocabulary and rules, and how to calculate statistics.

There’s nothing like a day at the game!
Head through the gates and hear the ballpark come alive! Test your baseball knowledge with a challenging trivia game, and make your ballpark experience fun and realistic with props, costumes, a dugout with a bullpen phone, and lots of real baseball equipment, memorabilia and graphics to explore.

Big League Fun was developed by the Betty Brinn Children’s Museum under a license from Major League Baseball, and is the Museum’s sixth national touring exhibit. It will head out on a four-year nationwide tour after its Milwaukee debut ends in spring!
