ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- The University of Michigan Athletic Department announced today (Monday, April 18) that the Towsley Family Museum inside Schembechler Hall will be open to the public on Mondays, Thursdays and Fridays throughout the year. The museum will be open from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. on those days and is free to the public.
The museum features a Win Wall with a football marking each of the program's 910 victories, displays with artifacts highlighting the history of Michigan football, and a Legends area. There are interactive displays that highlight the complete history of the football program.
A featured element in the renovation of Schembechler Hall is the life-size statue of legendary coach Bo Schembechler outside the entrance to the building. The statue is an iconic sideline image of Bo in his classic sideline attire and includes his timeless quote, "Those Who Stay Will Be Champions."
