I have one complaint & that being I only had 3 hours to spare. I could have stayed here all day & really let it all soak in. I'll be back one day to do that. Until then, what a great first visit!

We purchased tickets in advance online (a discount for advanced online purchasing would have been nice) and it made it a little easier to get inside. We had to park in a overflow lot down the street due to their being tents all over for preparing for the HOF inductions the following weekend. They provided small buses to transport people... More

We were here 17 years ago and noticed several improvements. My favorite part was the side talks that a guide was doing that day. We caught two of them. One was on the evolution of the helmet and the other was how they made the busts. The museum seemed to have more hands on activities this time (for example we... More

This was awesome to see the history of football. There were all kinds of exhibits. It was cool to see the progression of the NFL. The only disappointing part was the little money that is spent at this place. Think about how much the NFL brings in. This place could be a lot nicer.

Thus museum would get an excellent review except for the price, which is more suited for a theme park. At $23 per adult, you better like football a lot. But if you do, it's worth the price. A fan could easily spend several hours in the many themed rooms. Ask a local for discount tickets in a Stark county entertainment... More

I went here with my son who is a football fanatic. They see you can see all in 2 hours, it took us 5 hours but we did see everything and took pictures galore. Well worth the long drive we took.

Been here three times. The old HOF was just OK. Was expecting a much bigger "wow" factor from America's favorite sport Hall of Fame. It has been updated in the last few years. The new HOF? Ten times better. Many more interactive and static displays. Two thumbs up.

Second time I visited. I'm a huge John Elway fan. Loved seeing his bust again. I liked the way the Hall changed exhibits around and added others. Really a treat for football fans. Seeing the Lombardi trophy, championship rings, the room of busts and all the history is a "must see" for football addicts. Loved my visit again.

Pro football hall of fame is about an hour away from Cleveland, making it an easy drive. You need about 3-4 hours if you are going to read every display in every room. There is enough for fans of every team, however if you are a Jets fan like me, there wasn't too much because of all the years my... More
