The museum is located on the university's campus in the northern New Jersey community of Little Falls. In addition to the baseball exhibits and memorabilia, it offers children's educational programs that focus on sportsmanship and social justice.

The museum opened in the late 1990s, then underwent a $3 million renovation that was completed in 2011.

County, state and federal agencies are assisting in the investigation.
