Bob Hope: Shanks For The Memory

“Bob Hope: Shanks for the Memory,” is available for viewing with many of the memorabilia, photography, stories, audio tour recordings and video that thousands of guests have viewed since November 2008.

In the exhibit, you can trace Bob Hope’s life from his immigration from England as a young child through his rise to the top of the century’s major forms of entertainment – vaudeville, Broadway, film, radio and television. Covering more than 3,000 square feet, the exhibition also looks at his devotion to the United States troops and the various ways he championed the game of golf.

This exhibit has been so popular that in 2011, the Hall of Fame spun it off into a traveling exhibition called “Bob Hope: An American Treasure.” The Hope family has meticulously kept and curated so much memorabilia from Hope’s amazing life that each exhibit is full of iconic items for fans to enjoy.
