Ok - so I'm driving on Highway 81 in PA - and I see a huge spinning weightlifter on top of a building. What's that?

Oh - I'm entering York - and this is the HQ of York Barbell. Then I happen to notice the sign on this large modern looking building - the USA Weight Lifting Hall of Fame. Cool! I admit I am one who actually watches those World's Strongest Man episodes on ESPN2 and is impressed by those who can lift and heave all sorts of heavy objects - so I made note of it.

I looked it up when I got home and found out it had been open when I passed (closes at 6pm) and that it was FREE. So next time my travels or errands (yes, I drive far for errands sometimes) took me back up that way - I went back to check it out.

There is a small store for York Barbell with weights, equipment and accessories and then the museum had all sorts of power lifting memorabilia from the man who started York Barbell along with a giant statue of him and other power lifting nostalgia. It was interesting and worth the admission price (free). They also have an auditorium where they used to hold the strongman competitions, but it doesn't appear to have been used in a while.

The displays hadn't been updated for anything recent, but the place was very organized, clean and everything was displayed and featured nicely.
