Nice feature

...on the new Sports Museum of America in The Boston Globe. There has been a lot of media on the new museum in NYC but this one describes some of the exhibits and installations.

I was lukewarm about the place--even with the new Billie Jean King International Women's Sports Center--but now I think I will make a point to check it out next time I'm in the city. After all, how many times can one go to the Museum of Sex. [OK a lot but variety is nice.]

Plus I am interested in seeing if the museum itself covers women's sports or if they've stuck it all in the BJK wing as if it's some kind of auxiliary to "real" sports.

Sports Museum of America here - thanks for sharing the Boston Globe article. Here's a piece that local CW 11 just did as well that I think you'll like - http://youtube.com/watch?v=WjOQedvm6AE. And we're definitely excited to answer your question on whether women's sports is hailed throughout the 30,000 sf space - we've taken great pride in the overall balance of history, race and gender throughout the museum, and think we'll end up on the positive side of that ledger.

Look forward to seeing you down here.
