3. The National Track and Field Hall of Fame is Inside The Armory
There’s a wonderful Track and Field Museum inside the Fort Washington Avenue Armory where you can find sports memorabilia including the shoes of Michael Johnson (with real gold) and Carl Lewis (worn in the Olympics), New Balance’s first track shoes, historic track and field equipment, jerseys of famous runners.
On the floor, you’ll find the world record distances marked (as of 2003) and hanging from the walls are poles that mark the record for high jump and pole vault. A second room traces the history of track and field by the decade through historical photographs and more memorabilia.
