Located on the museum campus in downtown, right by the canal, the NCAA Hall of Champions is a small museum dedicated on college sports.
The first floor consists mostly of displays. One of them is on college mascots, which is also interactive, as you can mix up the parts of the mascots. Another is the variety of sports played on the college level, like track, water polo, swimming, and of course, football and basketball. Brief overviews on them, some of which, are probably only watched during the Olympics.
There is also the Hall of Honor, which is a circular room, honoring the various college athletes throughout the years. While I am not really a college sports fan, it was just fun seeing some familiar names on the wall, like Peyton Manning, John Elway, and other familiar names if you are a fan of pro sports.
The second floor is the interactive part. You can shoot some hoops in a basketball court there, as well as throw some pitches or kick soccer balls in a simulated game. Lots of fun to do. Plus there are displays of different equipment used in college sports, like a starting block used in track & field.
A small museum that is not really extensive on displays, it can be seen in about an hour. Of course, if you do the interactive things, then who knows how long that will be, as they are fun to do.
Overall, it is a nice museum for sports fans, but not quite a must-see. As someone who is not really a college sports fan, I thought it was a good place to visit. I would give it 3 1/2 stars!
