Wrestling Hall of Fame Getting State-of-the-Art Renovation

WATERLOO, Iowa —A $1.4 million renovation of the National Wrestling Hall of Fame Dan Gable Museum is scheduled to be completed in late March.

The project is transforming the facility into a state-of-the-art museum with interactive displays, including four kiosks with information about the 130 members of the Wrestling Hall of Fame.

It is also expanding the wrestling room, teaching center and theater, providing more opportunities for youth wrestlers to practice and receive instruction.

Located in a refurbished section of downtown Waterloo, the museum is named for Waterloo native Dan Gable, a two-time NCAA champion and Olympic gold medalist wrestler who coached the University of Iowa to 15 NCAA team championships.

“These improvements will make the museum more modern and appealing,” said Gable.
