So when I called they said to budget 30-45 minutes. I was there for double that. Given that boxing has been around forever, but the HOF has only been around since 1990, I had hoped for more stuff, but there is still plenty to see. Its kind of more of a history museum. There are title belts, trunks, boots, robes, every entrant has their own plaque on the wall, and any fighter alive at induction has their fist bronzed which was cool (different take on the football HOF bust). There also random items like tickets, programs, and mouth pieces (kinda gross but very unique). They also explain why it is there. After you finish the main building (first one when you enter the lot) make sure you go to the 2nd building. It contains the ring from MSG that has hosted almost every name fighter, super cool. This building also hosts the gift shop which has merch of theirs but also lots of signed items from fighters.

I don't know if people in the area understand what they have here. In a tiny town, but directly off the NYS thruway and a measly 25 minute drive from Syracuse, you have a spot that encompasses the history of boxing. The hall of fame itself is very small but packed with history and memorabilia. This is the one and only boxing hall of fame. Muhammad Ali has been here. Sylvester Stallone, Mike Tyson, and Sugar Ray Leonard as well. These megastars had to travel to Canastota, NY and they all did it. For a boxing fan this is every bit as legitimate as the Cooperstown baseball hall of fame. The only difference is that it's much smaller and not as crowded, which was actually a plus for me. They have a separate building for the gift shop (which is actually significantly bigger than the museum part) that also feature the Madison Square Garden ring which is probably the crown jewell of the place.

Always a must to stop by the Hall of Fame when in the area. Its filled with so much history. The president Ed is always a joy to talk to. If you go, be sure to bring a boxing glove and a pen, you never know who might be visiting the hall of famers. Boxers randomly show up.

Great museum for boxing fans. The annual parade is a must see event, a totally fun experience. Located next to the THRUWAY for easy travel.

This hidden gem is right of the highway and worth the stop. Great tributes to the legends of boxing as well as another building with the actual ring from Madison Square Garden...with a bell you can ring. Great gift shop and nice people made this a joy.
