The Pro Football Hall of Fame is the hall of fame for professional football with a Mission to "Honor the Heroes of the Game, Preserve its History, Promote its Values & Celebrate Excellence EVERYWHERE!" The Hall's five core values that are learned from the Game include commitment, integrity, courage, respect and excellence. The Vision of the Pro Football Hall of Fame is "It's not just the past, it's the future; It's not just about Canton, it's the world; It's not just a great museum for football but a message of excellence EVERYWHERE." The hall opened in Canton, Ohio, on September 7, 1963, with 17 charter enshrinees. , there are a total of 295 members of the Hall of Fame.
Canton, Ohio was selected as the location for the Hall of Fame for three reasons: First, the NFL was founded in Canton in 1920 (at that time it was known as the American Professional Football Association); second, the now-defunct Canton Bulldogs were a successful NFL team based in Canton during the first few years of the league; and finally, the community of Canton successfully lobbied the NFL to have the Hall built in their city.〔 Groundbreaking for the building was held on August 11, 1962. The original building contained just two rooms, and of interior space.〔
In April 1970, ground was broken for the first of many expansions. This first expansion cost $620,000, and was completed in May 1971. The size was increased to by adding another room. The pro shop opened with this expansion. This was also an important milestone for the Pro Football Hall of Fame, as yearly attendance passed the 200,000 mark for the first time. This was at least in some part due to the increase in popularity of professional football caused by the advent of the American Football League and its success in the final two AFL-NFL World Championship games.〔
In November 1977, work began on another expansion project, costing US$1,200,000. It was completed in November 1978, enlarging the gift shop and research library, while doubling the size of the theater. The total size of the hall was now , more than 2.5 times the original size.〔
The building remained largely unchanged until July 1993. The Hall then announced yet another expansion, costing US$9,200,000, and adding a fifth room. This expansion was completed in October 1995. The building's size was increased to . The most notable addition was the ''GameDay Stadium'', which shows an NFL Films production on a by Cinemascope screen.〔
