The Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame is a 25,000square-foot time capsule of history, artifacts and video detailing the team from its birth.
The exhibit starts at the beginning of the team’s founding and chronicles different times of the franchise’s history: 1967 in the Ice Bowl, 1970 the death of Vince Lombardi and a 1957 wooden seat from City Stadium. There are in depth explanations about people and events like the Lambeau Leap and a Vince Lombardi exhibit.
For Green Bay native and Packers fan Nora Short, 50, visiting the Hall of Fame for the second time was still a pleasure.
“You really get a better understanding of the team history,” Short said. “Packer fans already have that sense of pride and it just solidifies that pride. It really gives you a good background history of the franchise.”
Annually the Hall of Fame gets around 100,000-150,000 visitors a year. Last year it had 134,701 visitors. Hall of Fame and Stadium Tour Manager Krissy Zegers said that visitors usually enjoy seeing the trophy room and sitting behind the replica of Lombardi’s desk.
At the end of the fall and early winter the Hall of Fame will close and move to a new location in the upper part of the Lambeau Field Atrium.
“It’s going to be a pretty amazing move for us,” Zegers said. “We’ll capture Packers history in a better way so guests can be engaged in what we’re trying to do.”
There is no exact time line for when the Hall of Fame would reopen.
Birmingham, Ala., area resident Ronnie Burnett was in the area for a business trip and decided to come to the Hall of Fame to look for Bart Starr and Don Hutson, two former University of Alabama football players immortalized in the hall.
Some visitors are not even Packers fans, like Mark Baker, 53, who grew up in Chicago. Baker recommended though that any NFL fan should come to the Hall of Fame.
“I would have to say my favorite part of the tour was the Lombardi office and the things about Lombardi,” Baker said. “Especially some of his saying and things to motivate the team.”
