Chick-fil-A College Football Hall of Fame in Atlanta
Four Fabulous Georgia Museums for Sports Fans
Georgia has always been a sports-minded state. There are the professional teams like the Atlanta Braves, Hawks, and the Falcons, as well as numerous minor league and collegiate sports to cheer on. And the Masters, the pinnacle of golf, is played each spring in Augusta. In addition to watching an event, here are four fabulous museums in Georgia for sports fans.
College Football Hall of Fame
There is no denying, the South and football go together like biscuits and gravy. The Chick-fil-A College Football Hall of Fame in Atlanta is an interactive museum where guests can cheer on their favorite team. In between, learn about sports psychology, the art of the tailgate, and even the importance of mascots. Then, sing along with the band to your favorite fight song.
Butts-Mehr Heritage Hall Sports Museum
For the true Dawg fan, this University of Georgia sports museum is a must. Relive the greatest moments in UGA sports history, then soak in the glory with a visit to the Dooley Sculpture Garden, which is as long as a football field.
World of Coca-Cola
Did you know that Coca-Cola is the longest continuous sponsor of the Olympic Games? The relationship between Coke and the Olympics began back in 1928. Several promotional pieces as well as more modern Olympic pins are on display at the World of Coca-Cola museum in Atlanta. There is even a display of Olympic torches from the pre-Olympic torch relays.
The Atlanta History Center
In addition to being the world's most famous amateur golfer who popularized the sport around the world, Bobby Jones also co-founded the Augusta National Golf Course and the now-famous Masters golf tournament. The Atlanta History Center has an entire exhibit about Bobby Jones' life and contributions to the game of golf, as well as the state of Georgia.
