    I made my pilgrimage to Mecca today. After a odd situation where I locked my keys in my car outside of the Pro Football Hall of Fame, I entered, and was extremely impressed. I noticed how there were not very many Patriot-related things until you get to the "Super Bowl" portion of the museum, and then it was Patriot overload (hehe).

    Anyone else been? Thoughts? Comments?

    Pictures posted below!

    I went last summer with my dad, who is a Packers fan, and it was a ton of fun; really makes you appreciate the entire history of the game. I caught a lot of flack from him going through the entire thing until the Super Bowl displays and then I was able to gloat. I loved it, the whole experience. A ton of fun and I recommend it to any football fan.

    I went in 03, I think. They had a nice display of paraphenalia from sb36.

    There was a room where there was a circle of displays and each display reped a team. I remember seeing weeb ewbanks film projecter in the Jets section.
    The Pats display was a tiny strip with mentions of Hannah, Mike Haynes and surprisingly Nick Buoniconti.
    Behind the Pats display was the Packers display and that was no little strip.
    It even had a bench that was on the field for Lombardi's last game there.
    It was a great experience for me.
    Congrats on your visit.

    This is the exhibit about the streak. This was really cool to see, even though I knew about each game, it was cool to relive it.

    Hey thanks so much for sharing those, I'm not sure I could ever talk my husband into taking a trip there (he would rather fish than watch football :eek: ) so that was awesome to see those pictures!

    also, if anyone is interested, heres the Browns Stadium:

    [​IMG]

    It reminded me a bit of Gilette, except it was on the water, which I thought was a great idea.

    I wouldn't have checked it out otherwise, but it was next to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame:

    haha, I know. It's an old nickname I've had forever (since I was chunky), and it just kind of stuck.

    Great pics, thanks. But is it my imagination or why is it every time i see pics of the Football HOF, it always appears like there's no people in there. I went to the hockey HOF a few years ago and it was packed with people. Were there any other people in there?

    There was a small crowd there, possibly because it was a Sunday and it was raining, but the only time I ever ran into a problem with overcrowding or anything was these two kids who wouldn't let anyone else do the pass throwing activity. Other than that, I couldn't complain about the crowd at all. I would say there were probably 50 other people there.

    Wow. 50 other people? I"m amazed by that. I'm tellin ya when I went to the Hockey HOF, there were probably about at least a thousand people there. I mean it was wall to wall! You'd think it would be the other way around. Anyway, thanks for answering my question, glad you had a good time.
