“Gridiron Glory” Exhibit Opens at the Museum of Science

The Museum of Science in Boston, a NEC member, is launching a New England Patriots-themed exhibit on October 8, 2017.

The 6,000 square-foot showcase will include over 200 artifacts spanning the 125-year history of professional football with a special focus on the Patriots. “Gridiron Glory” will travel the country with memorabilia from the Pro Football Hall of Fame and interactive exhibits for fans.  The section dedicated to the Patriots will include documents from the founding of the team and Tom Brady’s draft pick as well as the jersey Rob Gronkowski wore when he tied the NFL record for touchdowns by a tight end.  Museum organizers explain that this exhibit will teach fans about the science required to determine the force needed to kick the ball, the construction of helmets and more.

“‘Gridiron Glory’ presents an opportunity for fans to experience the intersection of sports, society and science,” said Ioannis Miaoulis, president and director of the Museum of Science. “Through exhibits, programs and events, we are committed to developing new ways to engage people of all ages and interests. With New England’s incomparable love of football, we hope to attract a new wave of science enthusiasts spanning all generations.”

The New England Council congratulates the Museum of Science on hosting this exciting exhibit. Read more in The Boston Globe.
