The Italian American Sports Hall of Fame is easy to miss, which is surprising considering how grand its building is. You can get a pretty comprehensive history of Italian Americans in sports, and follow that up with an Italian beef nearby on Taylor Street.
If you want to go and learn about all the Italian Americans who played sports, this is totally the place to go. It's one room filled to the brim with memorabilia including race cars and jerseys spanning all different sports.
