One…two…three….you’re the winner! If you didn’t think the history of wrestling would make a fun family day out, then think again. The National Wrestling Hall of Fame and Museum is a shrine to one of America’s greatest sports and its achievements.
Not only is it an educational and informative look into the history of the sport, and a celebration of new achievements, but it also aims to inspire children to realize their goals, and that anyone really can achieve them if they believe they can. The most invaluable education.
Walk the Hall of Fame where you can see the extraordinary achievements of those who have won the Order of Merit, Medal of Courage and even High School Excellence (imagine coming back and seeing your picture up here!)
Look back in time at the African American Wrestling Experience Exhibit where their struggle and journey for equality will surely inspire you, and look back at all the success had at past Olympic Games.
The museum also hosts special events such as the Annual Honors Weekend every june where you can watch the wrestling champions in person collect their awards. Be sure to keep an eye out on their website so you don’t miss out.
For those sporting fanatics, this museum really is a great chance to look at what the future might hold for them. An inspiring visit.
