In history there are many sports champions and the San Diego Hall of Champions Museum depicts several of these famous men and women at their Balboa Park, San Diego, California location. The museum is considered the nation's largest with three levels of displayed artifacts and over 70,000 square feet. Included in the museum is a theater, media center, and several displays on sporting events in the United States.
The museum was founded by the Breitbard Athletic Foundation in 1946 to help promote education, competition, and to recognize spectacular sporting achievements by those in San Diego and the nation. Athletes in the hall of champions include Tony Gwynn, Ted Williams, Bill Walton, Florence Chadwick and many others from San Diego. Current exhibits include a Tribute to Jeremy Lusk, Action Sports, Baseball, Breitbard Hall of Fame, Bridgepoint Education Holiday Bowl, Café Gallery, Football, High School Sports and La Jolla Swim Club. Also on exhibit is the Origins of Surfing in San Diego.
Exhibits do change over the years. For example, Shades of Greatness, Over the Line, Military Sports, and Heisman Corner were some of the past exhibits displayed at the San Diego Hall of Champions Sports Museum.
