"In Greenville, SC, there is no doubt that the legacy of Shoeless Joe Jackson is safe at home. His home."

--Robert Thomas





Thanks so much for your interest in Joe Jackson and The Shoeless Joe Jackson Museum.

Museum will be open on Saturdays, from 10 AM - 2 PM

Due to the amazing growth in Greenville, our Museum will be moved (yes, for the 2nd time) about one hundred yards to the south, still on Field Street, still across from Fluor Field. Joe’s home will undergo some structural changes including a beautiful new addition.  This will allow us to showcase more of Joe’s artifacts and memorabilia, as well as enhance our gift shop offerings.

The current site will be redeveloped into a new complex of fabulous rental apartments and retail stores and will be named 408 Jackson, commemorating Joe Jackson’s amazing .408 batting average in 1911, still the Major League’s record for a rookie.

Our Museum’s address will remain 356 Field Street, representing Joe Jackson’s lifetime batting average, the 3rd highest batting average in Major League history.

We are excited and anxiously getting ready for this move of Joe Jackson’s 80-year-old home! 

Plans are underway to enhance our exhibits and your experience.   Once we move, we will be open up to 7 days per week including before all Greenville Drive games at beautiful Fluor Field.

In the meantime, as we await the finalization of construction plans for all the sites involved, our

Museum will be open on Saturdays, from 10 am – 2 pm.

Private tours, depending on the size of your group, can also be arranged by calling the Museum at (864) 346-4867 and leaving your specific request for a private showing.

So, yes, we are still open!  

Come on in, hear us share a story or two as you step back 100 years to when Joe worked his magic on baseball diamonds near and far.
