Depends whether you are a fan or not. Mostly photos and words, some old barbells. An outlet store. Weightlifters will like it, and the curious will be satisfied after 30 minutes or so.

A great overall view of weightlifting thru the years! It began here with Bob Hoffman! Weight and power lifting contests held periodically during the year! A must see for the weight lifting or body builder! A small gift shop on the premise.
