Archery Hall of Fame and Museum filled with industry icons

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. – The icons in the industry, the people who have drawn back and hit their target in the world of archery, are represented at the Archery Hall of Fame and Museum.

Inside the Bass Pro Shops, across from the recently opened NRA National Sporting Arms Museum, visitors are greeted by none other than Fred Bear at the stairs leading to the entrance of the archery shrine. Well, a statue of Bear.

Inside, the movers and shakers of the bow hunting industry, as well as competitive archers, are featured in stunning displays with artifacts from their lives. Spectacularly presented by Bass Pro Shops, the archery museum is a must-see for anyone interested in bows, and/or arrows. Or history.
