The Patriots Hall of Fame presented by Raytheon is, once again, undergoing some championship renovations. After New England won its sixth Super Bowl championship back in February, the planning began to incorporate the most recent championship into the Super Bowl Experience exhibit as well as the AFC Championship section of the In the Moment exhibit.
The changes are not quite as dramatic as those made following wins in Super Bowls XLIX and LI, but Super Bowl LIII will be well represented. A sixth pod will be added to chronicle the 2018 season and its fabulous playoff run to a championship in Atlanta.
The Super Bowl LIII pod will include amazing game-used memorabilia from the 13-3 win over the Rams with such items as cornerback’s Stephon Gilmore’s game jersey, tight end Rob Gronkowski’s cleats and gloves, linebacker Kyle Van Noy’s gloves, running back Sony Michel’s cleats and the head set worn by defensive coordinator Brian Flores.
The display will also house a 4k monitor that will show highlights from all three Patriots playoff wins, the Super Bowl Trophy and MVP presentations, the play-by-play from Super Bowl LIII, a team photo and roster and season storylines from throughout 2018.
Additionally, a sixth Vince Lombardi Trophy and championship ring will be added to the gallery.
While these changes can disrupt the flow through our Super Bowl exhibit, The Hall is doing its best to ensure that those disruptions are kept to a minimum. While work is being done in the trophy area, the Super Bowl Trophies have been relocated so fans can continue to enjoy a terrific photo opportunity.
This is the third renovation to the Super Bowl gallery in five years as the Kraft family has invested more than $2.5 million to enhance the exhibit and ensure fans enjoy their championship experience in The Hall.
The Super Bowl Experience exhibit allows guests to virtually make Malcolm Butler’s championship-clinching interception, re-live Super Bowl LI’s win over Atlanta in the Anatomy of a Comeback section as well as see Super Bowl stories on a large 16×9 video wall.
That Comeback section also includes James White’s entire uniform and the game-winning touchdown ball, Julian Edelman’s helmet and gloves from “The Catch,” and the football Matt Ryan fumbled, which was a critical play in overcoming a 28-3 deficit.
Our guest services staff will be on hand to answer questions and guide you through any renovation work. The exhibit work should be completed by mid-July.
We appreciate your patience as we complete out work and look forward to the 2019 season.
