The Rose Bowl Museum Experience 

The Rose Bowl Museum Experience is a key goal of the INSPIRE capital campaign.

For almost 100 years, the Rose Bowl Stadium has turned events into experiences. As big moments continue to be authored, it is vital that the historical importance of our past is preserved, presented, and purposed for the inspiration, education, and enrichment of youth and the community.  

Through strong partnerships and associations with the Pasadena Tournament of Roses, UCLA, and the City of Pasadena, a Rose Bowl Museum Experience will ignite memories and inspiration for visitors and youth.

It will also offer inspirational educational value to visitors through creative programming and technology to be built on the heritage of the National Historic Landmark.

The experience will aim to capture that essence and special connection of the stadium’s inspirational heritage through dynamic, evolving and motive displays and programming that represent the history and heritage in its brick and mortar.

The Rose Bowl Legacy Foundation has formed a museum committee comprised of members of its Board of Directors, Advisory Committee, and community members to steward the fundraising, ideation, and assist in the project's decision-making process.

"This is the mecca. This is the mansion at the end of the yellow brick road.  For anyone who is a college football fan, this is where you want to be - The Rose Bowl in Pasadena." 
  - Keith Jackson, the ultimate voice of college football for 56 years
