Gridiron Glory


The Pro Football Hall of Fame’s Gridiron Glory: The Best of Pro Football Hall of Fame exhibit opened in July 2021 in Myrtle Beach, S.C. The 6,500-square-foot space features more than 200 artifacts, rare photos and invaluable documents from the Pro Football Hall of Fame’s archives and collection, perfectly capturing the Hall of Fame experience.

In association with NFL Films, Gridiron Glory presents an interactive multimedia experience with a panoramic view of the story of professional football – from its modest beginnings in the late 19th century to the terrific cultural sensation it is today.

Artifacts include such historically remarkable items as the Vince Lombardi Trophy; a 1917 ball used by NFL’s first star JIM THORPE and the Canton Bulldogs; a football and leather helmet dating to the earliest origins of the game; Tom Dempsey’s famous show created for his half foot; and turf from the “Immaculate Reception” game in Pittsburgh.

Gridiron Glory at Myrtle Beach also includes other fascinating artifacts that help enlighten on the stories of Pro Football Hall of Famers RED GRANGE, DICK BUTKUS, JOE NAMATH, BART STARR, TOM LANDRY, JOE MONTANA, JOHN ELWAY, and many other legends of the game.

The exhibit, located at The Avenue at Broadway, South Carolina’s No. 1 tourist destination that attracts millions of visitors annually, provides extremely entertaining experiences that allow visitors to connect with the science, history and culture of football. It also features a retail store with exclusive Hall of Fame Myrtle Beach merchandise. For exhibit details, visit
