I am not big into sports as a spectator, but this place is very nice, covers a lot of sports and kept some of the paintings that were house in the now defunct music hall of fame. Well laid out, beautiful space.

If you are into sports, especially sports in Georgia, this is the place for you. The good is it does not focus just on UGA but many schools and also multiple sports - including baseball, tennis, cycling (!), equestrian, golf and many more. If you are into sports, this is definitely worth your time. Very well laid out and lots... More

The museum is in a good location downtown. It is near public transportation and near many of the other museums which is convenient when visiting Macon. It has other activities for children to do besides the typical display of the athletes.

I was amazed how many exhibits they had. I loved the interactive games and exhibits. I would suggest stopping by the museum if you are... More

The entrance movie was excellent; and would be an inspiration especially for students - never give up. The displays were set up nicely - even sports figures from my home state were honored which was a good feeling.

I visited the Georgia Sports Hall of Fame in August 2014. I thought the museum was affordable to visit, has interactive activities for children including tossing a football through a tire and the college sports exhibit featured all of Georgia colleges. As a graduate of the University of West Georgia, I found the display about UWG very informative. What I... More

We stopped in to the Georgia Sports Hall of Fame on our way back to ATL. The place is beautiful. The exhibits are nice. You start out with a movie that is about 20 mins long. The auditorium it is in is set up like Ponce De Leon ballpark. I went there as a small child and that was neat.... More

This is a good way to kill an afternoon if your in town (or a local). Nice exhibits, very informative and entrance fee is reasonable. Lot's of cool memorabilia from the history of a state that has been blessed when it comes to sports.
