Sports Museums

Many sports fans travel great distances to pay homage to the heroes of their game. Thanks to the Web, sports museums and halls of fame are one step closer. If you can't make it to Canton or Cooperstown, online exhibits can still get you into the game.

A great place to start is the International Association of Sports Museums and Halls of Fame. Their site puts sports history at your fingertips by allowing users to search by sport and geographic region to find related museums. Their database includes halls of fame dedicated to everything from trapshooting to archery and senior athletes.

Take a virtual trip at these sports museums:

  • National Baseball Hall of Fame
    From this excellent site you can read about the inductees, but the online exhibits let you explore the 3,000-Hit Club and how an artifact makes it from the ballpark to the museum. Be sure to check out the photography contests.

  • The Olympic Museum
    If you can't make the trip to Lausanne, Switzerland to see this museum, take a virtual tour at this site. Click on "Past" to read brief histories of the games. Remember highlights from Atlanta and Nagano by clicking on "Retrospective."




  • Hockey Hall of Fame
    Check out the Audio/Video Vault of induction ceremonies and other great moments. The resource center offers trivia, humor, records and rankings.

  • International Bowling Museum and Hall of Fame
    This St. Louis museum's site offers a 3-minute video tour, the history of bowling, weekly trivia, bowling news and more.

  • Pro Football Hall of Fame
    Features many links to NFL teams, extensive inductee biographies and information on the Hall of Fame Game.

See our Sports Museums page for more options.
