Free entry. We took our father in law who's into weightlifting. He really enjoyed it. We had two teenage girls with us and they had fun too. Plus the factory is right there and you can get some great deals.

We decided to check out this museum after we toured the Harley Davidson factory nearby. It's a small museum that doesn't take long to go through but we found it to be interesting. It does need to be updated with more current exhibits though.

The Weightlifting Hall of Fame is in here, along with a retail store. Takes about 60 minutes maximum, if you read everything. There are some cool facts and artifacts to look at, especially if you are interested in fitness.

Visited the museum at the York Barbell factory. Found it to be an interesting and an enjoyable 30 - 45 minutes of my time. The walk through is free and at your leisure. Would recommend it to fitness buffs or weightlifters (old and new).
