to msfame.com, the website of your Mississippi Sports Hall of Fame and Museum where the Magnolia State’s incredibly rich sports history is proudly displayed and extolled.
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, through our Wall of Memories, the Ben Puckett Olympic Room, the Dizzy Dean collection, our locker room, our theatre, our touchscreen kiosks and so much more. Those kiosks contain the stories of not only Payton, Manning and Rice, but all of the more than 300 legends who have been inducted into the Hall of Fame.
The museum also offers various meeting and event spaces for rental. We host everything from booster club meetings to business seminars, from family reunions and weddings to banquets. Our venues are unique and reasonably priced.
There’s plenty for children, besides learning about the remarkable and inspiring athletic achievements of Mississippians. We host birthday parties and we have participatory areas that include everything from pitching baseball, to shooting basketball, to throwing footballs and to broadcasting some of the most famous sports plays in Mississippi history.
Obviously, we have a splendid story to tell at the Mississippi Sports Hall of Fame and Museum. The goal of msfame.com is to further that cause. Our website will continue to improve and expand. Advertising on our popular site is available by calling 601 982-8264.
