I took two friends who are originally from outside the state of Alabama. Although they work and live here now, neither had been to the Alabama Sports Hall of Fame. They were both pleasantly surprised and thoroughly enjoyed the visit. They were amazed to learn of the Alabama ties of some athletes that they were quite familiar with. The Alabama... More

The museum had way more stuff to see than I ever imagined it would. There's so much that you can really walk around and pick and choose what you want to look at in detail based on which sports or teams you follow. If you're just a huge sports fan like myself, you'll probably have to make more than one... More

The Alabama Sports Hall of Fame and Museum is a great place for the sports enthusiast to visit. You'll see memorabilia from players both past and present representing both collegiate and professional sports. Items from Bo Jackson, Charles Barkley, Joe Namath, Bart Starr, just to name a few are there for your enjoyment. Plan on spending a few hours to... More

Alabama Sports Hall of Fame and Museum in Birmingham is a wonderful place to tour. It is small but has 3 floors of info of all kinds of sport greats. We are not originally from AL and was surprised to see many of the great were born and raised here in AL. Lots and lots to see!

This was a great experience to see the first Jim Thorpe trophy that was awarded to Harlon Hill. It was even better to find out that he was my husband's cousin and I wish I could have met him. This museum was nicely done and represented a lot of great athletes in Alabama history. The area downtown is nice too... More

A nice way to see the history of sports in the state of Alabama. Mostly static displays of jerseys and such. Will not keep the kids entertained.

Wanted to get up close and personal with the likes of Bear Bryant, Joe Namath, Hank Aaron, Tommy Agee, Chuck Barkley, Bo Jackson, John Stallworth and other fixtures of the Alabama sports scene. No luck. They shut the place down for a week ahead of an upcoming banquet or some such thing. From the outside, looked a bit dingy... not... More

The ASHOF is located next to the Convention Complex and adjacent to the Sheraton Hotel. It's worth a trip if you're a sports fan with an hour or so to spare.

Not a native of this area so I do not get overly excited about teams in Alabama. Sorry about that! The museum looks nice and enjoyed my visit. Went with the cub scouts.
