The Museum of Sports
“EVERYONE ONE OF US IS A WALKING ‘MUSEUM OF SPORTS.”
The Museum of Sports Show on 860 WWDB looks back in time with nostalgic moments and memorabilia of the Good Old Days, as we continue to recognize and identify historic events in the making now! We are forming memories every day, all of us. The Flyers Stadium Series OT win over Pittsburgh – Helluva comeback… The odyssey of Nick Foles with the Eagles… The demolition of Jaw’s Holiday Inn. The stories are endless.
From that first ballgame with your dad…to getting your first autograph…or maybe taking your kid to their first game. It’s that feeling you get every time you think of those memories…A feeling that brings us back to our Philly ‘field of dreams’ and our 860 WWDB ‘The Museum of Sports Show’ wants to go there with you, the sports enthusiast!
The Museum of Sports will be a permanent, interactive museum celebrating America’s greatest teams and athletes. It will be one of the world’s only museums celebrating all major sports.
The MoS will display world-class collections of priceless memorabilia, a high-tech array of digital and virtual reality activities for families and schools, plus a theater, sports restaurant, and shops for collectibles and memorabilia.
