The Place of Sports Heroes

In 1970, fifty years after the National Football League (then called the American Professional Football Association) was founded, ground was broken for the first museum to honor the greats of this American sport. Ever since, it has continued to expand and improve the exhibitions, providing a special experience for visitors. Unlike any other sports hall of fame, the inductees were proposed and voted upon by sportswriters, not owners and officials. Whether or not visitors agree with the choice of inductees, it certainly reflects the popularity of the sport and the special place in American culture. The hall is quite large, so budget at least three or four hours for a visit. Youngsters can spend time in a special gallery, playing EA Sports Madden Football and taking trivia challenges. If you get hungry, there's always the HOF Café. The Museum Store offers banners, jerseys and hats, as well as autographed helmets and footballs.
