The Hall at Patriot Place is filled with all sorts of reminders of the New England Patriots history. Many of the exhibits and artifacts are well known – such as the Lombardi Trophies and footballs from the 21-game win streak. Still, a visitor to The Hall will find plenty of unexpected items.
To celebrate International Museum Day, here are 10 pieces of Patriots history that you probably didn't know were in The Hall.
