Texas Sports Hall of Fame

The museum includes the Texas Sports Hall of Fame, Texas Tennis Hall of Fame, the Texas High School Football Hall of Fame, and the new Southwest Conference exhibit. One step inside the Texas Sports Hall of Fame will engage visitors in an interactive tour of the history of Texas athletics. Watch clips of important sports moments in Texas history in the Tom Landry Theater, show school spirit by singing along with the school songs from Texas universities, and compare hand and shoe sizes to those of NBA greats, with life-size replicas. See a Heisman Trophy up close, and find out what made Texas boxer George Foreman one of the best in history. This museum is a must-see on the list of Waco attractions.
