If you are a Boston sports fan this is the place to be. Lots of information, artifacts, and some behind the scenes. Would love to take again !

Great to get to visit the top floor but after that this is a really poor excuse for a museum. Being escorted past a few glass cases of pictures and shirts is not a museum, no interaction, no changing rooms, no trophies, no interaction - incredibly dull!

I'm glad we went during off-season and got a behind the scenes tour. Otherwise, it's not a museum, it's a tour of mostly pictures and a few jerseys. But we went in late August and got to go inside the hockey and basketball visitors' locker rooms, ON THE COURT, and behind the court to see where they store equipment. Such... More

The GIFT shop had a few Red Sox items and the tour had a couple of poorly staged carvings/statues of players from all sports. Interesting pictures and display cases of Bruins and some Celtics memorabilia along the corridors. Interesting way to spend a rainy morning. We did not get to stand on the venue floor as described by other tours,... More

It was a nice behind the scenes tour of TD Gardens. We got to see the visiting team locker rooms. It would have been better if we had more time to peruse the many framed photos along our tour journey. Standing on the main floor and seeing all the banners was a highlight.

Decent tour of the corridors and what players see when they go through the tunnels as well as where they go (but seriously why show us visitor but not home locker rooms?) There was lots of sports memorabilia as well as team highlights throughout the ages but it really was more 70-bruins/30-celtics which is understandable with the owner being the... More

This place is amazing! They have everything relating to Boston Sports history from programs from the Patriots inagural season to the penalty box from the old garden you can go into. They have everything from every team!

I will admit I'm a Boston Bruins fan, so visiting was somewhat team-focused, to learn more of the team history. The tour was wonderful. Bought my ticket in the pro shop and the tour lasted about an hour. We visited the empty arena, which was absolutely fascinating. She talked of the seating differences between the Bruins and Celtics games, and... More

Visited this museum 2 days ago, and it was absolutely incredible! The views from the top of the Garden were amazing, along with the informative tour the guide provided. Every question of mine was answered quickly, concisely, and accurately. As for the museum material, there were many neat forms of memorabilia, from the chairs from the old Boston Garden (yes,...

When we visited the Sports Museum, we had a guide take us through the various exhibits. I felt as though we were rushed through most of the areas. My husband is a huge Bruins fan and sports fan in general. I wish that he had taken the time to read more of the descriptions of the displays. The guide commented... More
