This is a good way to kill an afternoon if your in town (or a local). Nice exhibits, very informative and entrance fee is reasonable. Lot's of cool memorabilia from the history of a state that has been blessed when it comes to sports.

The Georgia Sports Hall of fame is located in beautiful down town Macon. My family and I had a great time traveling in time looking at the history of sports from all around Georgia. Some we knew of and a lot we did not. Not everything great is in ATLANTA, and the people was so nice as well with lots of near by places to eat, a park, and a beautiful river trail and the First Friday event which is celebrate every Friday was nice at the Hall of Fame and the whole downtown area.

Loved the interactive area upstairs. It needs a little bit of maintenance in some of the interactive areas. Overall worth a visit if you like sports.

Not that many items. I was expecting a lot more, and there was few items there. I was expecting more about Young Stribling, especially since he was from Macon. One ticket and a belt was it. Georgia's athletes deserve better.

We loved the hands on fun at the Sports Hall of Fame from the time in the Sports Cars to the time on the Courts, we were actively engaged from the time we entered the doors. It was hard to leave. The time passed quickly during our visit. Smiles were abundant in our group on this date and if I knew how to upload, I'd share the funny pics but I've not figured this new phone out yet. But your kids, even the "big ones" will love their time in this place. Georgia has a hidden gem in this one at Macon. So if you are looking for a good way to spend a Saturday morning, head out to Macon and take this in, you will not be disappointed and you'll pick up a lot of knowledge about Georgia sports heroes too along the way as you journey the backroads through our history. Well done Macon!
