The College Football Hall of Fame is an interactive experience that lets visitors learn all about some of the best players that college football has ever seen. Both players and coaches are immortalised here provided they meet the proper criteria first as determined by the National Football Foundation.

Anyone interested in football will find fun at this iconic attraction thanks to the sheer extent of exhibits available on select players and coaches. Many people spend around an hour or so here in total, although you're certainly welcome to stay longer if you desire a more thorough experience.

College Football Hall of Fame Highlights

Quite a few exhibits are on display within the College Football Hall of Fame along with a 45-yard indoor football field. Many of the displays are interactive as well, so it's especially exciting for football fans who are still kids that want to try the blocking activity. Some of the architecture of the building itself is reminiscent of a football.

One of the most iconic displays inside is the wall of helmets. This massive wall features helmets from all the NCAA and NAIA teams. Additionally, you can see the names of more than 1,000 players and more than 200 coaches immortalised within.

Good to know when visiting College Football Hall of Fame

Before you head to the College Football Hall of Fame, there are a few things to keep in mind. If you're driving yourself, you'll find plenty of parking available at the Green Deck on the corner of Baker and Marietta. Just keep in mind that parking there isn't free unless you only plan on staying for less than 20 minutes.

While you're visiting this destination, you'll find yourself near many other attractions you may be interested in. It's located right alongside the edge of Centennial Olympic Park, which means the World of Coca-Cola is just a short distance north of that.
