7. Tour the Mets Hall of Fame and Museum
The Hall of Fame and Museum is free to enter and is full of articles from throughout the team’s history.
Tucked away next to the Mets Team Store in the Jackie Robinson Rotunda sits the Mets Hall of Fame and Museum. According to an Untapped Cities reader and former and former associate editor the Mets’ in-house magazine Inside Pitch, the Mets Hall of Fame “was only added AFTER Met fans complained that Citi Field was basically a tribute to the Brooklyn Dodgers, and had nothing in that honored the home team.”
The museum is open to any and all guests before, during, and shortly after the game and does not require an extra ticket or pass to enter. The museum hosts many different and notable Mets artifacts like the original Mr. Met costume, trophies and memorabilia from the 1969 and 1986 World Series, and the aforementioned Shea Stadium Field level seats.
The Hall of Fame portion of the museum consists of game-worn jerseys, newspaper and video highlights, and plaques dedicated to each of the players. If you’re looking to visit when the team isn’t home, Citi Field offers tours that give guests an in depth look at many different parts of the stadium that are off limits during game time. On your next visit, be sure to stop in to take a stroll through the Mets’ history.
