The Sports Museum of America (SmA), the nation’s first and only interactive, multi-media all sports museum experience, opens today in New York. It’s billed as the first museum to pay tribute to the history and excitement of all sports. SmA partnered with more than 60 single sports Halls of Fame and other athletic organizations to showcase exhibits, memorabilia, stories and heroes from all walks of the sporting life.
The Museum hosts the first women’s sports hall of fame and is also the new permanent home of the Billie Jean King International Women’s Sports Center and the legendary Heisman Trophy and annual presentation. Here’s a great interview that Cokie Roberts did with Billie Jean back in early April of this year.
Located at 26 Broadway, in the heart of Lower Manhattan and at the corner of Broadway and Beaver Streets, SmA will be steps away from the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island ferries, Wall Street, South Street Seaport and the 9/11 memorial currently under construction.
