Summer Fun Out of the Sun- The Best Sports Museums in the Country

By DKL Staff - 7 years ago in Entertainment

Now that summer is slowly becoming apparent, many are fleeing to pools and beaches. But there are other ways to stay cool. Museums across America offer an air-conditioned space to learn. Not a big fan of the conventional museum? No problem, there are numerous sport museums to visit all over the country. Here are just a few of the best locations to indulge your inner sports fan.

Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in Springfield, MA

Named after the inventor of basketball, physician James Naismith, the Naismith Memorial often sees visitation from a wide array of basketball fans from all over the world throughout the year. It houses interactive history displays and an endless number of basketball memorabilia.

San Diego Hall of Champions in San Diego, CA

This is the place for every sports fan, since the facility offers a wide variety of sports to choose from. From football to skateboarding you can be sure to find it in the largest multi-sports museum in the United States. It is also a source of pride for locals, since all inductees are San Diego natives.

Hienz History Center in Pittsburg, PA

summer fun

An affiliate of the Smithsonian institution, The Hienz History Center is a historic museum with plenty to offer history buffs. However, for our purposes we will focus on the Western Pennsylvania Sports Center within the confines of the Hienz Center. This “museum within a museum” is anything but modest. It is two floors, 20,000 square feet, and memorializes Pittsburg’s accomplishments to American sports going as far back as the 1920s.

Those are just a few great places to visit this summer! Does your hometown have an amazing sports museum? Give them a shout out or let us know if we missed any of your favorite spots in the comment section below!
