The wall of helmets greets visitors. It’s pretty impressive and lots of fun.

With millions of college football fans glued to the tube this time of year, downtown Atlanta is marking its first season as home of the new College Football Hall of Fame.

It opened in August. It’s a beautiful facility, with more than 90,000 square feet of historical artifacts, displays, interactive features, photos and lots more. The hall is also the latest Really Cool Thing to have downtown, after the Center for Civil and Human Rights across Centennial Olympic Park.

I’m not a college football fan, but I get that many people are. So if you’re watching the game and want something to look at during commercials, check out my pictures here. And plan a trip to the hall. Great stuff.
