With Super Bowl XLVII bringing piles of attention to host city New Orleans, the NFL's Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio sent a special exhibit to the National World War II Museum.

The massive museum is one of New Orleans' newest major attractions, and we'll be covering it more soon. It covers the complete history of the war from a predominantly American perspective – including looks at the European and Pacific struggles, air power and the submarine force.

Its Gridiron Glory exhibit will feature a variety of Hall of Fame artifacts, exhibits and activities. In addition to seeing plenty of uniforms off the backs of NFL greats, there are countless photographs, history lessons and tests – including the opportunity to go "Under the Hood" as a replay ref.

Gridiron Glory will remain at the museum long after the Super Bowl – now through May 5, 2013. General admission to the museum is $22, $13 for Military with ID or free for WWII veterans.
