Getting the Most Out of Your Visit

The National Track & Field Hall of Fame is a gem of an interactive museum, located at The Armory Foundation, at 216 Fort Washington Avenue in Washington Heights, NY, where one can learn about what it takes to be the best you can be - come see what your body and mind need to be a great athlete; how to train, what to eat, how technology has changed the sport, and even what the great Olympians think about when they are competing.

 

Enter through our beautiful lobby with cutting-edge media surrounding you and watch our orientation film - the beginning of a two-hour visit that is both educational and inspirational.
