The Mississippi Sports Hall of Fame and Museum exists to tell –and preserve– the stories of Mississippi's greatest athletes and coaches, without question some of the world's greatest athletes and coaches.

Question: What other state can boast the leading scorer and receiver in NFL history (Jerry Rice), the leading passer in NFL history (Brett Favre), the second leading rusher (Walter Payton) and the patriarch of the first family of football (Archie Manning)?

Answer: Only Mississippi. And those guys are just for starters. Mississippi male and female athletes have excelled on national and international levels, winning Olympic gold, Super Bowl MVP trophies, World Series games and NBA championships.

Our museum tells those stories, and many more, including being home to the largest Dizzy Dean collection. Stop by soon and see for yourself!

If you have any doubt about Mississippi as a producer of world class athletes this museum will erase those thoughts. Great for children and adults.

I can't say enough great things about the MS Sports Hall of Fame and Museum. The facility is fun and exciting for all ages! There is so much history to explore...many of which I would have never known without visiting it. Of all the interactive activities they offer, I have to say pretending to be a sports announcer is my... More

Reserved for those whose lives are consumed with non-literate activities. Shrines to lives that hopefully experienced something other than ego.

This is a good place to go if you have time to do all of the interactive exhibits they have. We watched a video when we first got there that was really dated, and we didn't know that many of the athletes. There was a little boy's birthday party there that day, and I bet that would have been fun... More

Touch screens with videos that show actual events. Numerous artifacts, old and new. Games for the kids and adults. Great athletes seem to come to life, telling their stories.

This is not only interesting place to learn about the athletes from Mississippi, but a place you can try your hand at batting like the pros, or golfing or tennis. Great for adults and children.

The MS Sports Hall of Fame is a great place to visit. It's a great family event if you have the kids along, yet interesting enough to visit alone. The building is great and your tour starts with a short video/movie of the history of athletes from MS. It's quite interesting and very surprising at the number of awesome athletes... More
