Gridiron Glory is a panoramic view of the story of professional football – from its humble beginnings in the early 20th century to the cultural phenomenon it is today.

The 6,000-square-foot exhibition features more than 200 awe-inspiring artifacts, rare photographs, one-of-a-kind documents, spectacular footage from NFL Films, and interactive displays that challenge both mind and body. The interactive multimedia experience also includes a “Hometown Heroes” section to spotlight the Miami Dolphins and local football heroes.

Notables in attendance included former Miami Dolphins player and Hall of Famer Dwight Stephenson, Hall of Famer Lesley Visser, and about 40 Miami Dolphins alumni.

Guests were also able to see how they measure up to the pros by comparing their physical dimensions and athletic abilities to those of the biggest stars in the game.

Visitors also tried on vintage pads and jerseys along with today’s equipment and stepped inside the Instant ReplayBooth to see if they could make the right call.

Interactive touch screen selection kiosks also showed video clips on each member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame. 

Attendees were also able to relive the game-changing, milestone records that turned players into legends through Fantastic Finishes from NFL Films in a pop-up theater and tested their knowledge of the 267 members of the Pro Football Hall of Fame at interactive kiosks throughout the exhibit. 

“What a great way to fire up our football spirit, as our community rallies to host our record-breaking 11th Super Bowl during the National Football League’s 100th anniversary,” said Rodney Barreto, Chairman of the Miami Super Bowl Host Committee.

The Gridiron Glory: The Best of the Pro Football Hall of Fame exhibition is sponsored by Exclusive Heath Care Sponsor Baptist Health, Miami-Dade County, and Miami Downtown Development Authority. 

The traveling exhibition has been featured in every Super Bowl city since its opening in 2012 and will run through Super Bowl week. 

Gridiron Glory: The Best of the Pro Football Hall of Fame officially is officially open to the public and will run through Super Bowl 2020 in Miami, until Sunday, February 9, 2020.
