Museum Being Talked About as part of Heinz Field

The Steelers are considering opening a Hall of Fame or, more aptly, a museum as part of a Heinz Field reconstruction that will add 4,000 to 5,000 seats and improvements in other areas in 2012 or 2013 according to Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. At the moment, the expansion or reconstruction is estimated to cost around $30 million.

As for the museum, they have one of sorts, the Great Hall, on the ground floor inside Heinz Field, but under consideration would be a true museum that would include much more and open year-round and not just for 10 home games to ticket-holders.
