The hall of fame is a nonprofit corporation independent of the Green Bay Packers.
It raises funds through its annual induction banquet, golf classic and other events to preserve the history of the Green Bay Packers and expand its archives.
Historic memorabilia donated by individuals may qualify as tax-deductible gifts.
Originally established in 1967 as a temporary display in the concourse of the Brown County Veterans Memorial Arena, the hall of fame moved into its own facility in 1976 near Lambeau Field.
In 2003, it was relocated to the lower level of the Lambeau Field Atrium, and it was closed in November 2013 for renovations.
The hall of fame reopened in August of 2015 and is now located on the main floor of the Atrium across from 1919 Kitchen & Tap.
