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.

This is an awesome place to visit, one of the best if not the best in the country.

This is the place to visit if you like Alabama Football!!! Very well put together, and just fun to reminisce! Easy to visit if you are in the Civic Center area for another event. Just go a little early, and tour this museum.

I just needed something to kill an afternoon and found this. It is on the corner of Richard Arrington and 22nd Ave near the convention center. There is a parking lot on the 22nd Ave side for $8 and several parking meter spaces if you are lucky enough to catch one open. I was a little skeptical, although I live... More

Most people are surprised to learn just how rich the state of Alabama is in sports history. The sports hall of fame captures all of it regardless of sport and in an informative way. You will be surprised to learn who is from the state and in how many sports.
