Overview
More
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!

I visited the sports hall of fame and came away very impressed. The displays and history are outstanding. I especially enjoyed the basketball scoreboard from the early 50s. Any sports fan will enjoy this museum.

If you are near Jackson, put this on the must do list. Both young and old will love it! If you are from Mississippi, it will make you even prouder of our great state and all the talent we have produced.

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