The Shoeless Joe Jackson Museum is located in the beautiful West End of Greenville, SC. When you come to visit the museum, you will actually be visiting the home that Shoeless Joe Jackson lived in with his wife, Kate, until his death in 1951. In 2006, the home of Joe Jackson was dismantled, moved three miles, and reassembled on Field Street in the historic West End of Greenville, SC, directly across the street from Fluor Field, home the Greenville Drive, a minor-league division of the Boston Red Sox. In July 2007, the house was deeded to the Shoeless Joe Jackson Museum and Baseball Library foundation. On June 21, 2008, fans celebrated the dedication and grand opening of the museum! The not-for-profit museum displays records, artifacts, photographs, film and other items of interest associated with the historic life and baseball career of Shoeless Joe Jackson. A book collection related to baseball and its role in American culture is housed in Joe's former trophy room. Donations of books have been made by baseball enthusiasts from across America. The house number is 356, a reminder that Joe’s lifetime batting average was .356, the third highest in baseball history after Ty Cobb and Rogers Hornsby.The museum is FREE to all and there is also free on-site parking behind the museum! We also have a gift shop that accepts cash only. Come to see us & hang out at Shoeless Joe's house for a while! Our all-volunteer staff would love to give you a tour! Our passion is to educate old and new fans alike about one of the greatest baseball players in history!

If you are a baseball fan, this is a must stop. The museum is in the actual house Joe Jackson lived in. It was moved to it's current location several years ago. It is located right next to Flour Field, home of the Greenville Drive. Flour Field was voted 2016 Minor League Ballpark of the Year. So it's super easy... More

just a great little museum which I say is a must see if you like baseball. Mike and Bill were very giving of their time and knowledge as we entered the home. Lots of fun facts, pictures and personal mementos to see and read about Shoeless Joe.

Took my husband here as a surprise. He LOVED it!! The staff is VERY knowledgeable and friendly. Lots of baseball and general history. Next time ... I would have booked tickets to a game at the stadium for a Greenville Drive game - walking distance - and made a full day of it.

This is good to take the kids and entire family. They learn even while not realizing it. Afterwards take in a game and even get a funnel cake. :)

While baseball fans know Shoeless Joe and will be intrigued with the information / exhibits in this tiny museum, non-fans will find it an "I'm glad we stopped in" experience. Housed in Joe Jackson's former home, the museum is open only on Saturdays. The volunteer at the museum was a font of information; the memorabilia, photographs, library and details about... More

Good info. Have the curator give his spiel and you will find Joe was not involved in the BlackSox scandal

Shoeless Joe Jackson was a member of the infamous 1919 Chicago White Sox that supposedly threw the World Series against the Cincinatti Reds. Joe was also a local legend that grew up in Greenville.
