A small museum on the edge of Johns Hopkins University's lacrosse field, it nevertheless packs a wallop. Lacrosse fans will love seeing all the old sticks—technology has changed them dramatically—helmets, programs, clippings, trophies, and team jerseys. An ancient part of Native American culture, lacrosse has found followers across the United States and into 38 countries. An exhibit on how hickory lacrosse sticks are crafted is fascinating. A 25-minute film introduces visitors to the history and major players of lacrosse. The Hall of Fame features players, coaches, and football Hall of Fame member Jim Brown (a college All-American in lacrosse). Call ahead if you'd like a tour by the museum's archivist—he knows all the ins and outs of the game and its history.
