College Football Hall of Fame to Open in Atlanta

See recent posts by Amanda Geronikos

After the College Football Hall of Fame was continually overlooked in South Bend, Ind., the National Football Foundation made a game-changing decision, planning to move the museum to Atlanta. Five years and $68.5-million (most of which was funded by sponsors, namely Chick-Fil-A) later, the new location will open on Saturday, Aug. 23.

Just a five-minute walk from the Georgia Dome, the museum features several interactive activities, such as the Chick-Fil-A Peach Bowl Skill Zone, in which visitors are encouraged to kick field goals, act as quarterbacks and complete obstacle courses. Multimedia exhibits, galleries, and children’s activities will be part of the fun, too.

Tickets are $19.99 for adults and $16.99 for children ages 3 to 12; those under 3 are free to enter.
