Learn More About the American Sports Museum


A Museum like no other

There is something interesting about sports that we don’t often consider.  Sports connects to our lives in so many ways -- not the expected lessons of teamwork, competition and learning how to win and lose.  But, to physics.  Biology. History.  Race relations.  Medicine.  International relations. Law.  Politics.  And much more.   Thus, sports can be used as the connective tissue to provide a broad and vast story about all aspects of our world. 

Commitment to Schools

Museums have a responsibility to their communities, and that commitment will be at the heart of the American Sports Museum's mission.

Meet the ASM Team

The American Sports Museum team is led by two former executives from iconic institutions: the Shedd Aquarium and Adler Planetarium.  They are joined by a Board of Directors with a broad range of experience.  What they all have in common is the desire to build a great, new museum.
