My husband, step son and I took a walk thru the gym, it was close to closing, and the employees didnt even anounce they were closing and we got locked in the gym, but ended up finding a door in the audoturium and was able to leave.

Tremendous history of U.S. weight lifting to be explored. The store offers some deals on attire.

It was fascinating - I never knew this world existed! No silly toots, whistles or childish interactive displays here. This is a serious collection of well explained photographs, documents, and objects from this relatively unknown world wide sport. It is well worth the hour or so it takes to see it.

Depends whether you are a fan or not. Mostly photos and words, some old barbells. An outlet store. Weightlifters will like it, and the curious will be satisfied after 30 minutes or so.

A great overall view of weightlifting thru the years! It began here with Bob Hoffman! Weight and power lifting contests held periodically during the year! A must see for the weight lifting or body builder! A small gift shop on the premise.
