The innovations of bowling unfold before your eyes through life-sized replicas, touch-screen kiosks, film montages and interactive games. See the custom bike built by the Tuetel Family and featured on Orange County Choppers program. Talk to a 1920's pinboy with an attitude. See how bowling balls & pins are made. Play on a fully functioning small-ball bowling lane. We set 'em up and you knock 'em down.

We learned a lot about bowling history at the International Bowling Museum &Hall of Fame when visited last summer. The Many video and vintage bowling displays can entertain you for hours. Don't forget to ask for the bowler discount on admission.

Convenient to the Ballpark and Cowboy Stadium, as well as 6 Flags over Texas. Place to cool down during the summer heat.

Took my mother so she could take part in a church senior outing. It was smaller than I thought it would be, but so much more interesting than I had expected. I have bowled maybe 10 games in my life so I thought the afternoon would be more about the people I was with than the place we were visiting.... More

Anything you could possibly want to know about bowling is there. And since the International Training & Research Center is right there you might run into a Bowling World Star ;)

A nice stop, especially if you have bowled your whole life. The history of the sport was interesting and the place was very colorful. $10 a head seemed a tad high, but we don't regret going.

Interesting and very informative, even for people who are not bowlers. not very big, so even children can enjoy this. Some of the displays are interactive, explaining how things used to be done, how things are made, etc.
