Lacrosse Museum and National Hall of Fame
The National Lacrosse Hall of Fame and Museum, is located in Sparks, Maryland at US Lacrosse headquarters. Prior to moving to its present location in 2016, the museum was located in Baltimore, Maryland, on the campus of Johns Hopkins University. The museum showcases the history of the game of lacrosse, from its Native American origins to its present-day modern form.
On display are photographs, art, vintage equipment and uniforms, trophies, as well as other memorabilia and artifacts relating to the sport of lacrosse. Exhibits are also found on the Members of the National Lacrosse Hall of Fame.
The mission statement of the US Lacrosse Museum and National Hall of Fame is as follows:
It is our mission to honor men and women, past and present, who by their deeds as players, coaches, officials, and/or contributors, and by the example of their lives, personify the great contribution of the sport of Lacrosse to our way of life, and to enshrine such individuals in the National Lacrosse Hall of Fame. In addition, we will maintain a museum, depository or showplace for memorabilia, artifacts, equipment, uniforms, written material and documents relating to and descriptive of the sport of Lacrosse and its history, including its Native American origins.
