Museums deal in history, which makes them keepers of the past rather than agents of change. Dinosaur bones. Ancient Egyptian pottery. Renaissance statues. Even pop art, especially in America’s eye, can be so Andy Warhol four decades ago.
The Sports Museum, our crown jewel of athletics located inside Boston Garden, for the most part is no different. It houses the artifacts of our playing fields, keeps alive our greatest athletes, plays guardian at the gate to protect many of our strongest passions and memories.
