The Story of Pro Football


This session topic features a general discussion of the “museum concept” brought to life through the use of our priceless artifacts and historical documents, which illustrates the museum approach of conveying the history of pro football through artifacts/documents. There is also a discussion on Northeast Ohio's historic ties to pro football and why the Hall of Fame is located in Canton, Ohio. There is a 15-minute Hall of Fame video shown during this session. The program is supplemented by a lesson aligned with national standards of education.
