College Football Hall of Fame: FREE for kids in costume on Halloween weekend

The National College Football Hall of Fame – ticket discounts and FREE admission days

The College Football Hall of Fame includes must-see interactive exhibits with content personalized to over 770 teams, historical artifacts, a three-story helmet wall, and the inspirational rotunda that memorializes college football legends.

Visitors of all ages enjoy the running through the Peach Bowl Skill Zone, kicking a field goal, and throwing on the 45-yard indoor playing field.

The Fans’ Game Day exhibit celebrates the pageantry, passion, and traditions of the game. Visitors can sing fight songs and share screen time with sportscasters at the interactive ESPN College GameDay Desk.

All of your personalized, interactive content is saved for you to access after your visit, through an online portal where you can download and share favorite moments with family and friends on social media.

Getting there on MARTA

The Hall of Fame is a mere 6-minute walk from the MARTA Station known as Dome/GA World Congress Center/Phillips Arena/CNN Center Station. What were they thinking of when they named that thing?

The Dome Station (for short) is on the Blue and Green Lines.
You can take an Blue or Green train to the Dome MARTA Station, and then exit by following signs for State Farm Arena. You’ll go up the escalators to the street, turn left onto Centennial Olympic Park Drive, left on Marietta St, and you’re there.

We recommend the MARTA app for your mobile phone to find train schedules. And Google Maps does a great job of helping you get somewhere via the train — just switch the directions from driving to transit (it will automatically include the walking steps, turn by turn).

MARTA also has a convenient online guide for getting to the Football Hall of Fame.

 

Father’s Day 2022 FREE ticket deal

On Sunday, June 19, 2022, you can get a FREE ticket for dad when you purchase another regular price ticket. PLUS, the first 100 dads through the door will receive a $25 gift card to Home Depot!
