Admission was actually more expensive than I had anticipated, at $21 per person, but it does include a tour of the neighboring stadium, the 360 movie, and access to every exhibit; parking was free. The first exhibit was actually my favorite, which covered pre-NFL football. They did offer exhibits on the history of professional football, which I also found interesting and new – most of the history (pre-NFL) I was not aware of previously. You then enter the room where all the player busts are, which is as advertised and exactly what you see on TV.

They did have a few fun areas for kids, including some video games and other hands-on football activities. Given that football is so popular with kids nowadays, I was happy that there were kid-friendly activities and exhibits. Our tickets did include a tour of the stadium, which we had to skip due to timing, but it looked like it would have been fun (especially since growing up I always watched it on enshrinement weekend).
Overall the Pro Football Hall of Fame is just one of those places every boy wants to visit, and I am glad I finally got the chance. They are starting a major renovation & expansion, which looks very exciting and should dramatically alter the museum. Hopefully I'll make it back one day when it is complete!
