As promised, here are more sneak peeks of the 2020 MHOF Inductees, now illuminating throughout our museum atrium! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Congrats to The Oriole Bird {Baltimore Orioles, MLB}, Indiana Pacers Boomer {Indiana Pacers, NBA}, Youppi! {Canadiens de Montréal, NHL}, and Blue Indianapolis Colts Mascot {Indianapolis Colts, NFL} who were inducted this past June!

As many of you know, the Mascot Hall of Fame is not your typical Hall of Fame. Sure, you can learn facts about Inductees via our interactive kiosks and exhibits within the Department of Mascot Studies -BUT- you better believe we feature them uniquely! The floating, illuminated heads are hung annually to honor each new Inductee. These custom structures create a colorful, amazing atmosphere the minute guests enter the museum.

It’s certainly something to see! 👀

Shout out to Chicago Scenic Studios, Inc for your fantastic work.

Mascot Hall of Fame • Interactive Children’s Museum

The National Mascot Hall of Fame (MHOF) is located at 1851 Front Street in Whiting, Indiana. The 25,000 square foot, multi-million dollar facility is a state-of-the-art, interactive, family fun zone, with a wide range of exhibits, activities and events that celebrate mascot fun. Original and memorable mascot interactions and performances will entertain, teach and enthuse children and their families year-round.

Located just 30 minutes from Downtown Chicago, the MHOF features a number of interactive exhibit areas designed by Cincinnati-based Jack Rouse Associates (JRA). This award-winning firm has designed world-class family museums and attractions such as the Coca-Cola Museum in Atlanta, the Crayola Experience in Pennsylvania, and the Green Bay Packers’ Hall of Fame. Guests will experience exhibits such as the "Department of Furry Arts", the "Science of Silliness Lab", and the "Phuzzical Education Department". In addition, the MHOF hosts annual induction ceremonies as well as many other mascot programs and events attracting visitors from all over the country.

More than just a giant fun factory, the MHOF has many interactive, educational displays and activities that incorporate S.T.E.A.M. education (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) to compliment state and local curriculums. There are nearly 1.7 million students, within a 100-mile radius of the MHOF, whom could be positively impacted to engage in healthy-active lifestyles. The MHOF is the perfect destination for school field trips and youth organizations.

The MHOF is located at the very east end of Whiting’s beautiful 119th Street Downtown Business District and serves as the corridor to Lake Michigan and Whiting Lakefront Park. The exterior of the building features a huge rendition of Reggy, the official mascot of the MHOF. Once inside, visitors can use their imagination to design and physically build a mascot, audition as a mascot, and perform exciting mascot stunts including firing t-shirt and confetti cannons. The MHOF will surely provide a unique opportunity for an affordable, shared, family experience. To learn more about the MHOF visit www.mascothalloffame.com.

With the openings happening everywhere, is there any update on when you may open?
I am ready to watch it
Sir Roland's BIG Adventure! Hey everyone! So I have been writing this children's book on and off for the last two years and now it is time for me to get serious about it! This children's book is something that I am personally doing as a project and a bucket list item of mine, unrelated to Mascots for a Cure. This is a story that is full of adventure and features real children who are battling cancer or have battled cancer. Together, with their combined super powers and alongside Sir Roland, they take on the fight against cancer! This book is going to be AMAZING and super IMPACTFUL! If you, a company you work for, or anyone you know would like to be a part of this process, please check out the link below! Sponsored levels range from $25 - $250 for individuals and $500-$5,000 for businesses. Each sponsored level gets something cool in return! Check it out and please share!
Any chance of you putting your store online for those who don’t live in the immediate area but still want to support the museum ?
It was quite an experience to come here!
Mascot Hall of Fame check out my story involving one of your own! Today, the Chiefs and Texans play on the field, but the teams’ mascots friendship will last well beyond the game.
Wondering if you guys are ever going to update your website. If the Final announcement was on the 11th of December why is your site still showing the VOTE. Thought there might be a just a little more excitement and actual fanfare over this. I'm in Canada and apparently Youppi! was inducted and I've heard absolutely ZERO about it. Me and my FB group The Blue Paint are awaiting patiently but come one Mascot Hall Of Fame...
Can’t wait until the next induction ceremony. I want to see who the next mascots are that will join the Hall of Fame
Happy Halloween, Reggie!
It is a travesty that Mister Redlegs is not even nominated, but Mr. Met has already been inducted. Mr. Met is just a cheap knock-off of a classic mascot of one of the original NL teams. Add Mister Redlegs to the ballot.
