Pro Football HOF's Traveling Exhibit Sets Up Shop In Boston's Museum Of Science
The Pro Football HOF's national tour has stopped in Boston, where its "Gridiron Glory" exhibit allows visitors to "learn the science behind the game and get to know the inspirational stories of its pioneers, coaches, and star players, including those who broke down barriers," according to Bob Wallace of PATRIOTS.com. Visitors will get "closer to the game through the exhibits' many artifacts, award-winning photos, NFL Films footage, interactive and immersive experiences, and a special hometown section" during its limited engagement at Boston's Museum of Science, which ends Jan. 9. Visitors will "explore the connection between football and science through sports science interactives and artifacts showing the technological advances of equipment." Exhibit components "challenge both mind and body, including an active 'Training Camp' space for kicking and passing, challenges from the Combine including the vertical and broad jump, and the chance to step into the officials' shoes in the Instant Replay booth." More than 200 HOF artifacts, "award-winning photographs, one-of-a-kind documents and storied footage from the NFL Films' archives will be on display" (PATRIOTS.com, 10/19).
