- New York Yankees Museum
The New York Yankees Museum presented by Bank of America, located on the lower level at Gate 6 of Yankee Stadium, displays a wide range of Yankees' memorabilia. It is a key attraction at the stadium, which opened in 2009.
A "Ball Wall" features hundreds of balls autographed by past and present Yankees, and there are plans to eventually add autographs for every living player who has played for the Yankees. The Yankees Ball Finder, a touch-screen computer in the museum, allows the viewer to look for Yankees alphabetically to find the location of their ball on the "Ball Wall".
The centerpiece of the museum is a tribute to Don Larsen's perfect game in the 1956 World Series, with a commemorative home plate in the floor and statues of Larsen pitching to Yogi Berra. Along with a facsimile of a current locker from the Yankees' clubhouse, fans can view the locker of the late Thurman Munson, which sat unoccupied in the previous stadium's Yankee clubhouse in honor of Munson.
The jersey Derek Jeter wore during the game he achieved his 3,000th hit is in the Yankees Museum.
