About
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!

Must see for sports fans and non-sports fans alike

5 stars across the board for a great experience even if you're not a giant sports fan like myself. Knowledgeable and friendly staff, cool exhibits, admission price is a bargain, and a room for private events. It would be great if it were larger, but it still rates 5 stars!

Stopped by for what I thought would be a quick stop and turned in to a short 2 hours. Great images and artifacts and displayed well. A lot of local heroes who also did well on the national level in their respective sport. Good family entertainment and easy to access. Not sure if the non-sporting audience would find it as interesting as I did but worth a stop.

Good value, needs to add stories

We had a couple extra hours at the end of the day, so decided to check out the Mississippi Sports Hall of Fame. It is nicely done for a local facility and well worth the five dollar entry fee. There is a well produced introductory video and then the museum collection is thoughtfully broken up into thematic displays.

We thought the experience could be enhanced by adding short audio or video clips, or more written word displays, with interesting or compelling stories about Hall of Fame members. For example, they have a section on Dizzy Dean and I recall hearing so amazing and colorful stories about his time in the major leagues and barnstorming during the off-season. A couple of these stories would help people who don’t know about Dizzy Dean to get to know him better.

Also, many of the Hall’s members were involved in some amazing sports moments. It would be great to have short videos highlighting those exciting times.

Great for MS sports fans

Nice looking museum, not all the activities were functioning. Unfortunately, we discovered how little of a sports fan my son is, so we probably won't have a reason to return. However, if you are a MS native and love sports, I would recommend a visit for you.

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.

Very Impressive Museum

MS has so many professional athletes to be proud of! It's wonderful to have a place to showcase all of the talent that comes from our state. The facility is also available to rent for events and they have great birthday parties for kids.

Great visit
Feb 2017 • Couples
After years of always saying one day I'm going to stop by here, my wife and I decided to stop by. We were not disappointed. Even for a life long sports fan such as myself, there were things that I learned. If you have a couple of hours to kill then I would recommend stopping by.

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.
