MILWAUKEE, Wis. — The National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum has announced its establishment and intention to locate in Milwaukee, Wis.
The National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum will display the world’s largest collection of bobbleheads and bobblehead-related exhibits and be the premier source of bobblehead related news and information online (www.bobbleheadhall.com) and at the Museum.
“We are very excited to bring such a unique attraction to the great city of Milwaukee.
The National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum will be a fun venue for collectors, fans and visitors to experience all things bobble-related,” said Phil Sklar, the Hall of Fame and Museum’s Co-Founder and CEO. “Milwaukee is such a unique city with a long sports history, making it a perfect location for collectors and fans around the world to gather for the ultimate bobblehead experience.”
Museum members will receive exclusive benefits including a limited edition bobblehead of the Hall’s Mascot, which will be created through a national competition. The first 1,500 members will receive an individually numbered gold jersey edition of the Founding Member Bobblehead, with the next 18,500 members receiving the white jersey edition. Membership benefits, in addition to exclusive access to online content and unlimited Museum admission, include the honor of voting to induct the most unique bobbleheads into the Hall of Fame on an annual basis.
The National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum is still evaluating several potential locations. In addition to the Hall of Fame and Museum space, plans include room for special events such as birthday parties, autograph signings, weddings and meetings and a store featuring bobbleheads and Hall of Fame and Museum merchandise. Plans also include the Bobblehead Bar and Grill featuring a bobblehead-themed, locally sourced menu. Sklar plans to open the physical National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum by 2016.
