Located just south of the Georgia Aquarium and across the street from Centennial Olympic Park, the College Football Hall of Fame offers more than 50 interactive exhibits dedicated to its namesake sport. Inside the 95,000-square-foot facility, visitors can look for their team's helmet on the three-story Helmet Wall, admire Heisman and National Championship trophies, sit at the interactive ESPN College GameDay Desk, kick a field goal at the 45-yard football field and more.

If you're a fan of college football, then travelers say you'll love exploring this attraction. According to many visitors, the hall of fame does a great job of engaging kids of all ages, though some felt the property's interactive activities did not justify its high entrance fees. Others caution that this hall of fame is hard to enjoy when it's crowded and may feel like a letdown compared to others across the country.

The College Football Hall of Fame is open Sunday to Friday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and on Saturdays between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. To get to the property, travelers can drive or use public transportation. A fee-based parking area is located on the corner of Baker and Marietta streets, and the Dome/GWCC/Philips Arena/CNN Center MARTA train station sits within walking distance. The No. 51 MARTA bus and the Atlanta Streetcar also stop nearby.

Tickets cost $21.99 for adults, $18.99 for seniors and students, and $17.99 for kids 3 to 12. Or, visitors can purchase an Atlanta CityPASS, which covers entry to the museum and four other popular attractions. Active and retired members of the military and children 2 and younger get in for free. The museum is also home to a theater, a gift shop and restrooms. For additional information about on-site exhibits and how to purchase tickets, check out the museum's website.
