This is an ok museum. I could be better if they offered more hands on activities for family's. Also, the ones they do have are not always opened. If the museum is open, everything in it should be. It good to see one time but I wouldn't go back over and over like some.

After taking the water taxi from Downtown Norfolk VA, It was a quick walk to the Virginia Sports Hall of Fame and Museum. The museum is 2 floors. A lot to memorable of the Virginia players. Any sports fame would enjoy this museum. There is some interactivity for the kids to enjoy.

Place has facts and memorabilia that a sports enthusiast may enjoy. Lots of interactive things to do, but most of them are broken and/or not working. Took my family of 5 less then an hour to be in n out. I won't go back.

The actual Hall of fame is down stairs and really really small but still had a lot of interesting items. It's really not for adults its all about the kids. It really doesn't take that long to go through the entire thing maybe like an hour.

I took my daughters there for my first visit (they have previously been) & it was about what I expected for the money. Many interesting facts & interactive play. I do think that they need to update & maintain it better though. Several things were not working (theater, Nascar games, treadmill) & the soccer balls had the stuffing hanging out... More

As Va natives, this museum was very informative of all the great athletes VA. Grandchildren loved the interactive games, all sports highlighted. We had the museum to ourselves so is is truly a hidden jewel in Portsmouth

The museum is a must for Virginia sports fans. Interactive displays are found throughout the museum with things to do for both the young and young of heart.
