Volleyball has a storied history rooted in inspirational champions, impactful leaders, and great moments that have influenced history, on and off the court.  The Museum at the International Volleyball Hall of Fame shares the narrative of volleyball history from its origins through present day

Hundreds of objects are displayed from the International Volleyball Hall of Fame’s collection. Completely redesigned and now showcasing more of the collection than ever before, the new Museum offers a comprehensive and intriguing narrative of volleyball history in an engaging manner.

We encourage you to purchase your tickets online prior to your visit.  We look forward to having you as our guest. We miss you and are excited to welcome you back to our newly renovated museum.


The International Volleyball Hall of Fame remains committed to our efforts to share the story of volleyball globally at all levels of the game. However, now, more than ever, we need the help and support of volleyball fans worldwide and our local community to help us accomplish this.

This continues to be a challenging year for the International Volleyball Hall of Fame. Our Museum is operating on reduced hours and our annual large public events so vital to our fundraising have been cancelled.

Whether it’s a current player striving to be the next champion or a child picking up a volleyball for the first time, volleyball history and its legends have the unlimited potential to inspire.  A gift today will allow us to continue creating opportunities to keep young athletes active and engaged to grow their love of the arts, history, culture, and sport.
