The Sports Museum, Boston

3.7
#28 of 37 in Museums in Boston
The Sports Museum is a 501(c)(3) non-profit educational institution housed in the TD Garden that has served Boston and New England for more than 37 years.

At The Sports Museum, we celebrate the character of Boston sports -- the unique brand of teamwork, determination, responsibility, courage, fairness, and other qualities of character possessed by our teams and athletes that make Boston "The Greatest Sports City in America." Equally important, we use this distinctly rich heritage to help build character in kids so that they can stand strong in the face of drugs, violence, and other dangers.

Our mission is to use sports to teach the values of leadership, respect, and cooperation to our youth. Over 20,000 students will participate this year in our educational programs that we deliver to that end, including Boston vs Bullies, Stand Strong, the Will McDonough Writing Contest and more.

ALL bags are PROHIBITED.

  • My teen is a basketball fanatic and he was in a zone just seeing TD Garden!!! Our tour guide, Catherine Bogart, was AMAZING!!! She shared so much information and answered every question the kiddos asked. We thoroughly enjoyed our Sports Museum tour and are planning to return in the summer for the TD Garden tour.
  • Its more of a Hallway than a Museum. However, the Items they have on display are Great! Historical Boston Athletics on display, I wish they had an exhibit for wrestling and the circus, which were annual fixtures at the original Boston Garden.
