I tried to visit this museum in June 2014. A sign on the door said the museum is permanently closed.

“Amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2014

This sports museum is spectacular for people of every age. The most amazing part is that it is the collection of one man, John Hamilton, a real estate developer who started his collection as a young teen. Admission is free, and apparently the reasoning is to share sports memorabilia and introduce kids to role models. Don't miss this museum.

Fantastic museum! Unbelievably extensive collection of sports memorabilia. Enjoyable for even those who don't know too much about sports (myself included!).

“It's free and awesome!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013 via mobile

This little place has a HUGE collection of sports memorabilia. It's a must see for any sports fan. They even have an indoor basketball court that you can shoot around at! If you're in the Newport area I definitely recommend going to the sports museum. And it's free!! What more could you ask for!

“So many cool things to do and see.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2013

So fun! Staff was nice. So many cool things to see and do. My son's favorite was the stadium seats and the basketball court. Seeing the basketball players' shoes was very neat, too. This is free and easy to walk to from the fashion mall or nearby hotels.
