Overview

The Mississippi Sports Hall of Fame and Museum exists to tell –and preserve– the stories of Mississippi's greatest athletes and coaches, without question some of the world's greatest athletes and coaches. Question: What other state can boast the leading scorer and receiver in NFL history (Jerry Rice), the leading passer in NFL history (Brett Favre), the second leading rusher (Walter Payton) and the patriarch of the first family of football (Archie Manning)? Answer: Only Mississippi. And those guys are just for starters. Mississippi male and female athletes have excelled on national and international levels, winning Olympic gold, Super Bowl MVP trophies, World Series games and NBA championships. Our museum tells those stories, and many more, including being home to the largest Dizzy Dean collection. Stop by soon and see for yourself!

It's a great place for a sports fan to take their child/grandchild to share the history of MS sports. It's a very nice venue for meetings as well. If you are into sports you'll find this interesting. You can drop your sports fan off here...More

This museum looks nice from the outside and has a decent layout inside. While there are a number of displays, not many are all that memorable outside of the one for Dizzy Dean. It is worth a stop for fans of Mississippi sports and athletes.

I didn't particulary enjoy this museum, but people who are big fans of the particular Mississippi athletes featured here may enjoy it.

I stopped in here with local friends and enjoyed the exhibition. It was in a very nice building and the exhibits and interpretation was very well done. I didn't know that MS has such a stellar history of athletics, although I should have. I was...More

I spent 3 hours at the Museum asking questions about Jerry Rice, Brett Favre, Walter Payton and Oil Can Boyd. Sad that none of Payton's stuff is on display but they made it clear they are trying and are in process of tweaking attractions. Interested...More

Average sports museum. Not a must see. If you competed in Mississippi sports it might be of some interest.

I love sports and grew up playing all kinds of sports. Yes, this place has some interesting members and their belongings, but I was truly disappointed by the lack of representation of women sports & athletes. That was the biggest disappointment.

This was my first visit to the Miss. Sports Hall of Fame. It is very well done and very reasonable in price. It shares the same parking lot with the Agricultural Museum and parking is free. It probably would help if you were from Mississippi,...More
