13 Below Theater & Super Bowls I and II
We are always striving for excellence and to improve our exhibits andexperience for our visitors. Whether that is installing a new exhibit, addingnew artifacts, updating our interactives or reimagining a gallery, we’re alwayslooking to make our space fresh and exciting.
Most recently we have enclosed our Ice Bowl theater, now rebranded as the13 Below Theater, to make the experience more intimate. This also allowed us to rework our Super Bowl I and II displays. As the champions of the first two Super Bowls, we really wanted to pump up the space and allow us to expand on unique stories and incorporate artifacts like the football that Herb Adderley intercepted in Super Bowl II and returned for the first defensive touchdown in Super Bowl history.
QB1: Play Like a Legend
Over the last several months, the Hall of Fame has been working diligently on a creating a new and exciting interactive display - QB1: Play Like a Legend.
As soon as you enter the museum, you are greeted with the opportunity to put yourself in a legend's shoes. This one-of-a-kind, touchless gaming experience uses advanced 3D tracking technology to allow you to step into the QB1 position in one of three historic plays. Spanning three generations, fans can play as Bart Starr in the Ice Bowl, Brett Favre in the Monday Night Miracle game, or as Aaron Rodgers in his comeback during the 2018 season opener.
The most recent renovation to the Hall of Fame was completed in August 2015, and as history moves forward, the museum must grow along with it.
The Hall of Fame is happy to announce the expansion of our Pride Gallery. This gallery is dedicated to the period from the 1970s to the present. Highlighted in this space are legendary players, staff and moment of the last four decades, including Super Bowls XXXI and XLV.
Curator Brent Hensel has been collecting artifacts and documenting the last several years of Packers history, and now we have more space dedicated to those achievements. This addition features more of the recent history, including Aaron Rodgers' 4 MVPs, the Hail Mary moments, and Matt LaFleur's record-breaking start to his head coaching career.
50s Classic: The Golden Era of Green & Gold
The Hall of Fame recently installed a new interactive display dedicated to the 50s Classic Uniforms which debuted on the field this season against Washington. Inspired by the Packers' uniforms from 1950-1953, the display details the story of the uniforms with several artifacts on display, including an original jersey from Packers Hall of Fame inductee Ted Fritsch.
Visitors have the opportunity to "wear" the 50s Classic uniform by posing behind a mannequin outfitted in an authentic Aaron Rodgers jersey.
The display was designed and fabricated by the Packers Hall of Fame, the Packers facilities team and Wild Blue Technologies.
Call to the Hall
Call to the Hall, our new exhibit honoring the induction of Bobby Dillon and Charles Woodson into the Pro Football Hall of Fame, opened on July 26th.
The exhibit features an inside look at Woodson's free agency and his legendary leadership that helped propel the Packers to their 13th NFL championship. It also explores how Dillon became blind in one eye and yet still holds the franchise record for career interceptions.
Pro Football Hall of Fame Inductees
With the induction of Bobby Dillon and Charles Woodson into the Pro Football Hall of Fame, the Packers will have twenty-seven inductees in Canton. The enshrinement is scheduled to take place in August and will celebrate members from the last two years. Dillon was a part of the 2020 Centennial Class, and Woodson's induction as a part of the class of 2021 was announced this past February.
The Packers Hall of Fame will honor each of these inductees with their own locker display in the museum's excellence Gallery. Like our other Pro Football Hall of Fame members, their lockers will be filled with artifacts celebrating their football prowess and their time with the Packers.
As per tradition, Dillon and Woodson will also be commemorated with a special temporary exhibit detailing their distinguished careers. As strong defenders, these two seem the perfect pair to honor together.
Plans for these exhibit updates are currently in the works. Stay tuned to the Hall of Fame's website and social media accounts for updates on their progress.
