The More Than Conquerors Sports Museum is the result of a great love for sports, meeting amazing people, attending games on many trips. Through the display of the More Than Conquerors Sports Museum, we seek to send a message of no more violence to all who come out to see it. Sports is a great avenue to promote and establish a culture of peace in every community.
The Museum contains a variety of sports memorabilia, autographed photos and jerseys, balls and items of great interest. The purpose of the display is to celebrate the athletes, hoping that each one finds victory in the “game of life”.
The Museum has traveled to many countries, visiting schools and special events.
