Paley Center exhibit celebrates NFL's 100th season

MIDTOWN, Manhattan (WABC) -- An exhibit at the Paley Center in Manhattan is marking a milestone season for professional football.

"A Century of Football: Celebrating the NFL's 100th Season" is open through October 27 and includes the famed Lombardi Trophy and all 53 Super Bowl championship rings, as well as rare artifacts from the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

"We had a team of folks who went down to Canton, Ohio, and worked very closely with the executives down there to curate a really special experience for fans of football," Paley Center President and CEO Maureen Reidy said "What you find here is it's folks of all ages coming in. Grandparents are bringing their grandkids. Parents are bringing their young kids. And just football fans come."

Visitors can take photos featuring "Life a Pro" uniforms and screen memorable NFL games and documentaries, and family viewing events include screenings of live games with tailgating-style concessions.

There are gaming stations featuring EA Madden NFL 20, interactive trivia, and arts and crafts for families and kids.

The exhibit is open from noon to 6 p.m. from Wednesday through Sunday and until 8 p.m. on Thursdays. It is closed on Mondays and Tuesdays.

The Paley Center is located at 25 West 52nd Street, between Fifth and Sixth avenues. For more information, visit
