The Missouri Sports Hall of Fame's displays of memorabilia delve into fond memories of new and old athletic legends. A menagerie of jerseys evokes sports greats and combines athleticism and apparel more spectacularly than a laser-guided T-shirt cannon. Autographed baseballs flaunt florid curls by a wide range of purveyors of the American pastime, and equipment from teams such as the Kansas City Chiefs and Kansas City Royals elicits excited chatter from longtime fans. A massive list of inductees from sports such as football, baseball, boxing, and soccer invites fans from all arenas, and an outdoor assortment of sculptures allows attendees to unwind or gleefully steal imaginary bases.

Busts of Stan Musial, Lou Brock, Ozzie Smith, and Jack Buck line the Legends Walkway outside the Missouri Sports Hall of Fame. But the museum spotlights more than just baseball history. Its inductees hail from the high school, collegiate, and professional ranks, including players and coaches from the Rams, Chiefs, Royals, and Blues. Highlights of the many exhibits and articles of sports memorabilia include the Budweiser NASCAR car, the wing dedicated to the Missouri Valley Conference, and the pole that Paul Bunyan used to vault over the St. Louis Arch.
