SCORE!, one of the newest attractions on the Las Vegas Strip, might be called a sports fan’s dream come true. The new exhibit at Luxor has enough memorabilia and interactive experiences to send guests into sensory overload.

SCORE!, which opened in December, features a multimillion-dollar collection of historic items from the Pro Football Hall of Fame, the Hockey Hall of Fame, the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame and others. Items are displayed in eight galleries devoted to various games and pursuits.

Among the prized possessions: Jim Brown’s 1957 NFL Most Valuable Player trophy, the Heisman Trophy awarded in 1981 to USC tailback Marcus Allen and the 1999 FIFA Women’s World Cup trophy awarded to the Americans who beat the Chinese at the Rose Bowl.

The attraction also displays uniforms worn by a variety of sports legends, including baseball’s Babe Ruth, basketball’s Michael Jordan, boxing’s Muhammad Ali, football’s Terry Bradshaw and racing’s Richard Petty.

Fans also create their own memories in the “Be the Legend” arena. They can participate in a variety of athletic challenges, such as a baseball speed pitch, hockey stick handling and a vertical leap test.

SCORE! is open 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily. Admission is $28 for adults. Children younger than 12 get in for $15.

Info:  Available online or by calling (702) 262-4200.
