About the Hall
The Patriots Hall of Fame presented by Raytheon is an exciting, innovative and interactive, modern museum experience for all ages. The Kraft family long considered the best way to honor the greatest Patriots of all time while simultaneously preserving Patriots history. They scored a touchdown when they opened The Hall in September of 2008 and again with a $1.5 million exhibit renovation in 2015.
The family’s investment in The Patriots Hall of Fame presented by Raytheon accomplishes its goal to give Patriots fans a unique, technologically advanced venue to relive and celebrate great moments and great players and even recall some of the hard times that make all fans, including long-time season ticket holder Robert Kraft, appreciate the recent Super Bowl championships. The Hall will impress Patriots and football fans alike.
The Hall is a modern “museum” that takes guests through Patriots and New England football history in a cutting-edge way, utilizing amazing video and audio to tap into fans’ emotions in a manner never before seen in a sports museum. It also works to freshen the experience with new exhibits and renovations.
In 2015, The Hall gutted two galleries and built a new Super Bowl Experience exhibit that has areas dedicated to each of the team’s four Super Bowl wins that feature large 4k monitors that provide an historical look back on those championship seasons. The gallery also includes a 16×9 video wall featuring 12 Super Bowl vignettes, an interactive that allows you to make Malcolm Butler’s Super Bowl XLIX-clinching interception, the five Vince Lombardi Trophies and the five championship rings.
From a 45-foot wide panoramic projection screen that plays a signature film produced to emotionally connect the fans and the region to the Patriots, to a geodesic dome housing a Snow Bowl exhibit, to touch screens that take you into the most memorable moments in team history, The Hall experience is one you don’t want to miss.
If that’s not enough to whet your football appetite, you will have the opportunity to learn the playbook from four-time Super Bowl champion head coach Bill Belichick, go under the hood and review plays like an actual NFL official, go inside a huddle and listen to quarterback Tom Brady call plays, test your vertical jump and compare your weight to Vince Wilfork’s. You’ll also block Tedy Bruschi, kick a field goal, and listen to never-before told stories from past Patriots.
You’ll enjoy seeing the greatest Patriots of all time honored in The Hall of Fame presented by Putnam, which welcomes guests to view the team’s hall of famers on 30-foot high video pylons that use a new, must-see LED video technology.
The Hall’s New England Football exhibit will walk you through the sport’s regional history while highlighting all the reigning high school Super Bowl or state champions in each New England state on the exhibit’s Wall of Champions that displays each school’s football jersey.
Your Hall experience is sure to be one you’ll tell your friends about.
The Hall also offers a relevant education program for school groups at an amazingly low admission fee and there are reduced rates for non-school groups of 15 or more that book in advance.
So make your trip to Patriot Place complete by being our guest at The Patriots Hall of Fame presented by Raytheon.
