The IBM/HF teamed up with the Reno-Sparks Convention and Visitors Authority to bring this exhibit to The Biggest Little City in the World. The RSCVA helps to promote convention and tourism business for Washoe County.
The IBM/HF satellite museum is housed on the first floor of the famed “Taj Mahal of Tenpins” and features hall-of-fame portraits as well as artifacts collected and preserved by the IBM/HF.
The new museum is an extension of the IBM/HF, which is located at the International Bowling Campus in Arlington, Texas. Reno has been home to many of bowling’s greatest moments since the NBS opened its doors in 1995, and it was a natural fit to display another segment of bowling’s rich tradition.
“Reno’s National Bowling Stadium is a historic and iconic venue for our sport, making it a perfect place for the hall of fame to have a presence,” IBM/HF President Keith Hamilton said. “We look forward to tens of thousands of visitors enjoying the new satellite museum and are thrilled to help further enhance the bowling experience in Reno.”
The IBM/HF satellite museum is open for public viewing during regular NBS hours and is free of charge to tour.
