Andonie Museum

The Andonie Sports Museum opened in 2004 and still operates as a popular museum by appointment only today (school groups, etc.). In 2016, it was added to our rental inventory and quickly became a popular rental space because it features memorabilia celebrating the various sports teams, booster clubs, cheerleaders, and the famous Golden Band from Tigerland. It has served as the host location for judicial proceedings, rehearsal dinners, corporate parties and tailgates, board meetings, reunions, birthday celebrations, and just about any form of event that seeks a unique venue for guests.
