“appealing to all ages”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

Well thought out highlighting Mississippi stars. The over all theme is about the contributions made by theses homespun persons. The subject matter is well represented for all sports with exciting updates I would like to see more local persons who contributed much more to their individual communities. (big fish in small ponds) They are the ones who will keep the excitement in the communities and the dollars. Most pro athelets leave these small ponds an forget about the people that made them. This is reason for my request to focus on this matter. Over all good little museum experience for us we were in Jackson visiting family and had a couple of hours before a fight home and it was down the street from the airport.

“Interesting.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013 via mobile

Loved the 12 minute movie. Enjoyed visiting the museum, my husband informed me on a lot of the sports inductees. Actually, I recognized several of the names from several of the collegiate buildings, for example, Tad Smith Coliseum on Ole Miss Campus and Bonner Arnold Coliseum on Northeast Mississippi Community College Campus. I enjoyed the museum. The staff had set up the locker room for a birthday party.....what a fun idea!

“A fitting tribute to some great athletes”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

Rube did a spectacular job of getting this project going, and his work has been continued in order to provide recognition and an education about people that made great contributions to a variety of sports, all of whom called Mississippi home.

“okay....”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2012

This place isn't bad- I just had myself all pumped up looking at the building from the outside, then was a little underwhelmed when we went in. Nothing bad happened here. There is certainly an emphasis on MS athletes- which one would expect. Decent collection, just not as good as I had hoped.
