IGHOF QUICK FACTS

The International Gymnastics Hall of Fame (IGHOF) is a fully independent, not-for-profit organization that is not affiliated with any other organization. We are recognized by the International Gymnastics Federation (FIG) as the de facto, official hall of fame for the sport of artistic gymnastics.


The IGHOF functions much like the National Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, New York. The NBHOF is not affiliated with, nor governed by, Major League Baseball. It works closely with the league, however, in acting on its mission to preserve and promote the history of the game. In that same way, the IGHOF works closely with the FIG, the International Olympic Committee and national governing bodies for artistic gymnastics from around the world, as necessary, to honor the legends of our sport and promote their individual legacies.

The International Gymnastics Hall of Fame Exhibit is governed by a board of directors made up entirely of volunteers with backgrounds in gymnastics, business, education and public service. The IGHOF Exhibit is located within the Science Museum Oklahoma, at the OmniPlex Center in Oklahoma City, OK, U.S.A., which attracts more than 20,000 visitors a month, primarily school children.
While plans for a permanent bricks-and-mortar home are under development, the IGHOF actively advances its mission on several fronts, including our cornerstone event, the annual Induction Ceremonies, and our global "virtual" Hall of Fame online at www.ighof.com.
