Pro Football Hall of Fame, Canton

#1 of 12 in Things to do in Canton
See memorabilia from and immerse yourself in the history of one of America's favorite games at Pro Football Hall of Fame. The museum depicts the National Football League's rise to global fame, but it also represents other significant groups, such as the American Football League and Canadian Football League. A bust of each Hall of Famer is accompanied by an interactive exhibit of his career achievements. Look for the museum's rich collection of original jerseys, game balls, and Super Bowl rings. Relive memorable plays or whole Super Bowl games via video presentations. No more than seven people are inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame each year.

  • Got there around 9am on a Saturday to a light crowd. Spent a solid 4 hours meandering through the exhibits. If you are a true football fan and sick of present day cry baby players it was refreshing lo...  more »
  • Our visit was a mixed bag, beginning with the way we found out there is a $10 parking fee that you pay after entering the building. Weird, but okay. The Hall of Fame itself had an almost reverent aura...  more »
  • Conveniently located, right of a major highway, the National Football Hall of Fame is where you visit to see the greats of the game. Great displays, interactive stations, two fan theaters - one with a...  more »

  • The entire experience was absolutely exceptional, incredible, from the ticket counter and all the floor staff, the lady taking the souvenir pictures, to the two floors of amazing exhibits. And this from someone not particularly a pro football fan. I spent three hours here, bought the Bronze Membership, and took over 250 pictures myself. The exception to my absolutely exceptional, incredible experience being the girls at the pick-up counter where you get your souvenir pictures, who are completely void - and I do mean ZERO - of any customer service. Brandi all but snapped my ticket from my hand, no greeting, no eye contact, never even looked up at me, as she sat there on her stool feet bundled up under her like she was polishing her toes or something, and handed it off to another staff, who apologizes to Brandi! It was like I was interrupting something they were all already doing. And I was the only customer standing there at the moment. Brandi then walked off and eventually one of the girls finally asked how I was doing, to which I replied that I as doing fine "...up until about 60 seconds ago." I filed a formal complaint against Brandi with the supervisor of the PFHoF. Turns out Brandi was the Supervisor of the girls in the photo shop. If Brandi is the last point of contact guests have at the Pro Football Hall of Fame, maybe the Pro Football Hall of Fame needs to have a chat with Brandi.
  • There was lots of handicap parking available. At the time of our visit, the football card display was very interesting and well displayed. The displays throughout the museum were interesting, well-presented, and in-depth. Our 7-year old very much enjoyed the interactive displays, with many videos throughout covering various aspects of the development of the NFL, from the players to the business side. There is a very large gift shop with plenty of Hall of Fame specific items in addition to the standard team memorabilia. I would recommend budgeting 3 to 4 hours to tour the facility. Even as a non-football fan, I enjoyed our visit.
  • The bust hall is easily the best place here. Could spend all day there. A lot of info about the past and present of football. $10 parking on top of ticket prices. Gift shop is WAY OVERPRICED! Not a good place for little kids, better for adults. A lot of video and audio about the spirt, not much interactive stuff. People who don't follow football closely will not get it. Someone who is loves football will be like a kid in a candy store.
  • Great place to learn about the history of the sport of football and see exciting memorabilia....take the Insiders Tour....you learn so much more than walking around yourself! Our docent, Dan, was very knowledgeable and a great presenter. Make this a 'must see' when planning a trip in the area. Thumbs up!
  • Fun and fact filled visit. Well done museum. I did think the Joe Namath hologram motivational show was a little weird.
