Payton, Peyton, and Dizzy
The Mississippi Sports Hall of Fame is a great place to go for the sports enthusiast.
To start off, there's a nice little video that gives a brief introduction to some of the sports greats that are in the museum. Additionally, the video is a rundown of MS sports legends like Walter Payton, Jerry Rice, Archie Manning, and Dizzy Dean. The content is great, but the screen and video medium itself is a little worn down.
After the video, the actual museum has a ton of exhibits to see. One can test their skills by throwing a football, kicking a soccer ball, or pitching to a batter in a "test your skills" area. It's great for the kids.
There are videos of all time greats, talking about their accomplishments, thoughts on sports, and thoughts on life. Some of the greatest moments in Mississippi sports history are also a finger-tip away on the computerized monitors. The depth to which the interviews go is fascinating, making video watching an all day possibility.
Other than the aforementioned, it's the typical sports museum. Old uniforms, cards, hats, memorabilia, championship rings, pictures and graphics line the walls. Bring plenty of film.
