I am not a follower of weightlifting, but I was in the area. Why not check it out. I was very impressed. There is great history here, and you do not have to be a weightlifting fan to appreciate it.

If you're into weight lifting and you're a little older and you remember the hay day of weight lifting then this place is a cool stop. Lots of old pictures and some old school equipment. Nothing spectacular but worth a stop if you're in the area.

I had always wanted to see this museum ever since I took up body building when I was 17 and used to read STRENGTH & HEALTH and MUSCULAR DEVELOPMENT and knew about York and its athletes and York weights. I'm glad I finally was able to do it. The museum, albeit dated, gives one an historic idea of what American weightlifting must have been like under the auspices of Bob Hoffman. I'm glad there are two museums now devoted to a sport of weightlifting - the York Barbell Hall of Fame and The H.J. Lutcher Stark Center for Physical Culture & Sports at UT in Austin, TX.

My family enjoyed visiting this Barbell Hall of Fame. I had heard of York Barbells as my parents had lived in this town. It was a surprise to learn there was a Hall of Fame there. Interesting in a town full of historical and art museums. The three boys loved it-ages 10-15 but we all enjoyed this visit!

My wife was a body builder for about 15 years, many years ago so she insisted we go. It was interesting but dated. But, it was deja vu for my wife.
