“A must for any sports fan”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2011

Just a few hundred yards off I-55 at Lakeland Drive. Mississippi having the distinction of having more professional athletes per capita than any other state makes this a must stop for sports fans. You can get in and out in an hour or spend half a day. Easy stop for a break when driving through Jackson. Football fans will note that, arguably, some of the best position players in the pros are honored here. Favre, Rice, Payton and Guy have all ruled their respective positions and are each connected to Mississippi. Baseball, basketball and many other sports greats are represented also. Worth the stop.

“Nice place to stop”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2011

This is a fun place to visit. You start your visit with a movie. While entertaining, it is definitely a bit dated now. Clearly over 10 years old and showing its age in my opinion. The staff is super friendly and very enthusiastic about the place. There are many movie clips to watch throughout and you'll see many stars you recognize. The interactive exhibits- namely the one where you can record the call of a big play- are quite fun for everyone.
