Almost every sport is covered in this building . No matter what sport you like it will be here. The hall is easy to navigate and they even have an area where you can interact with shooting hoops, kicking field goals and broadcasting great moments in sports.

What a neat museum in downtown Macon!!! The Hall is packed with the items from the rich history this state has in sports across the country and around the world!! This would be a perfect school trip, rainy day activity or- due to the fountains out front- a great way to beat the heat on a summer day!!

a very interesting collection of sports memorabilia from sports heroes whose roots originate in Georgia. All sports are represented in this eclectic assemblage of wonderful items. Allow yourself plenty of time to take an easy stroll through the hall of fame to take in all that it has to offer.

I am not big into sports as a spectator, but this place is very nice, covers a lot of sports and kept some of the paintings that were house in the now defunct music hall of fame. Well laid out, beautiful space.
