November 21, 2023 - August 25, 2024

Connecticut is home to many sports that connect people in communities—and in competition. From the popularity of pedestrianism in the nineteenth century to the modern roller derby craze, these sports may be less familiar, but they have histories of expressing and contributing to our cultural experiences. Their stories show the diversity of athletic traditions, abilities, and creativity in the state.

From A to Z, discover your new favorite sport through objects and images and take part in interactive displays — because what’s an exhibition on sports without a little healthy competition? Get general admission tickets to the Museum for access to this exciting exhibition, only on view through August 25, 2024.
