FOXBOROUGH, Mass. – Veterans and active military are invited to enjoy a free visit to The Hall at Patriot Place presented by Raytheon over Memorial Day weekend. From Saturday, May 24 through Monday, May 26, The Hall will offer free admission to all veterans and active service men and women.
On Sunday, May 25 and Monday, May 26, veterans and active military can complement a trip to The Hall with a visit to CBS Scene, which will offer a complimentary lunch special (available at dinner as well) with a military ID.
The Hall is open Saturday 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., Sunday 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., and Monday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Since opening in September 2008, The Hall and partner Raytheon have offered free admission to military personnel each Veterans Day and Memorial Day. Military personnel were also offered free admission in 2010 during an extension of the traveling exhibit "Pro Football and the American Spirit," which told the story of professional football players and personnel who served in the military from WWII to Desert Storm and the conflict in Afghanistan.
Guests visiting The Hall can enjoy the history of the New England Patriots through many exciting exhibits, including The Cover Boys – The Patriots on the Cover of Sports Illustrated, which looks at the Patriots' appearances on the cover of Sports Illustrated over the years. From the first in 1966 to Tom Brady's 17 cover appearances and the team's three Super Bowl Championships, the exhibit features more than 50 SI covers accompanied by game-used artifacts as well as an exclusive behind-the-scenes video from two Patriots cover photo shoots.
