The mission of The World of Little League®: Peter J. McGovern Museum and Official Store is to educate the general public about the history, service, goals, and initiatives of Little League Baseball and Softball.
This has been accomplished through a conscientious effort to obtain and curate artifacts and archival materials pertaining to the organization. These artifacts are organized for research and educational purposes and used in interpretive displays which can be enjoyed by individuals of all ages.
The museum shares the reasons Little League has become the world’s largest and most respected youth sports program. The Little League story unfolds in an exhibit response that flows directly from the concept of a six inning Little League game. The exhibits are comprised of a rich mixture of authentic Little League heritage, artifacts, and images and cutting-edge technology.
