Fodor's Review

Founded in 1902, the museum is now in a state-of-the-art facility on Bicentennial Plaza. It houses the N.C. Sports Hall of Fame, which displays memorabilia from hundreds of inductees, from college heroes to pro superstars to Olympic contenders. You can see Richard Petty's race car, Arnold Palmer's Ryder cup golf bag, and Harlem Globetrotter Meadowlark Lemon's uniforms. The Capital Area Visitor Services, in the same building, is a great place to plan your downtown itinerary, pick up brochures, or arrange area tours.
