The Atrium is the grand hall of the Hall of Fame that includes a wonderful view of nearby Finkbine Golf Course out the grand windows that run the height and length of the East side of the building. The West side of the Atrium has access to our other wonderful event spaces and contains the various exhibits that any Hawkeye sports fan would love to view. This Atrium is equipped with a projector screen that is built into the second floor of the north wall, allowing it to be viewed by the whole atrium. To enhance the Atrium, it has wall mounted speakers that run the length of the room. This space is ideal for banquets, receptions, holiday parties, wedding ceremonies, and other social gatherings.
