The National Mascot Hall of Fame (MHOF) is a 25,000 square foot, multi-million dollar, state-of-the-art, interactive, family fun zone, with a wide range of exhibits, activities and events that celebrate mascot fun.
Original and memorable mascot interactions and performances will entertain, teach and enthuse children and their families year-round.
Located just 30 minutes from Downtown Chicago, the MHOF features a number of interactive exhibit areas designed by Cincinnati-based Jack Rouse Associates (JRA).
Guests will experience exhibits such as the “Department of Furry Arts”, the “Science of Silliness Lab”, and the “Phuzzical Education Department”.
In addition, the MHOF hosts annual induction ceremonies as well as many other mascot programs and events attracting visitors from all over the country.
More than just a giant fun factory, the MHOF has many interactive, educational displays and activities that incorporate S.T.E.A.M. education (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) to compliment state and local curriculum.
The MHOF is located at the very east end of Whiting’s beautiful 119th Street Downtown Business District and serves as the corridor to Lake Michigan and Whiting Lakefront Park. The exterior of the building features a huge rendition of Reggy, the official mascot of the MHOF.
Once inside, visitors can use their imagination to design and physically build a mascot, audition as a mascot, and perform exciting mascot stunts including firing t-shirt and confetti cannons.
The MHOF will surely provide a unique opportunity for an affordable, shared, family experience!
