There are many Hall of Fame Museums around the country that have some interesting things on display. Every so often, they are able to add another baseball bat, football helmet, or basketball jersey to their massive collection. In Indianapolis, you can now walk in and see something that you are not able to see anywhere else in the world.
The Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in Springfield, Massachusetts just celebrated their 50th year anniversary two years ago. Having been there, I can tell you that they have some pretty interesting things inside that will keep you there for a long time.
The Pro Football Hall of Fame Museum in Canton, Ohio is one of the more famous ones in sports. Obviously they have a lot of people coming in to check out the many things they have inside as well. The first class of Hall of Famers were inducted in 1963.
The National Baseball Hall of Fame Museum in Cooperstown, New York goes back to 1939. This museum features more than 38,000 items, including three million books and documents, and 500,000 photographs.
Still, none of these three can compare with what the Indianapolis Motor Speedway has to offer now. Where else can you go and find 67 winning cars from the Greatest Spectacle in Racing? The museum has really put together an amazing collection of the most famous race cars in the world. From Ray Harroun's 1911 Marmon Wasp to Dario Franchitti's Dallara/Honda, the museum is now the place where you can find nearly every winning car from the Indianapolis 500 mile race.
