The mission of The Archery Hall of Fame & Museum is to honor outstanding figures in archery like Fred Bear, Earl Hoyt, Jr., and Ben Pearson, by inducting them into its hall of fame. This, the finest archery museum in the world, seeks to preserve the history and tradition of archery and bowhunting for future generations.
The Archery Hall of Fame and Museum has roughly 1,500 artifacts representing a majority of its 72 members. It took 40 years for the Hall to find a permanent home. Check out A Closer Look at the Archery Hall of Fame and Museum to learn more about the members of the Hall of Fame, the dream of finally opening the museum and the memorabilia that fills it.
