You Make the Call: Learn to be an NFL Official

You Make the Call: Learn to be an NFL Official

All Ages
Open through March 23

Get ready for Super Bowl XLVIII at MetLife Stadium! The Children’s Museum of Manhattan and the National Football League have joined together to create an interactive experience at CMOM to celebrate this history-making event. Families will get a rare behind-the-scenes look at NFL officiating and the opportunity to train like an NFL Pro. Special daily and weekly programs and clinics—including NFL’s Play 60 obstacle course—will help families understand how developing better decision-making skills, including working together, planning, organizing and focusing on physical fitness leads to leadership and social success. NFL officials, executives, and current and former players will also stop by the museum through the exhibit’s run. Visit our calendar for information on all of the special activities!

The exhibit is part of CMOM’s EatSleepPlay™ national early childhood obesity prevention initiative, which CMOM, a Let’s Move! Museum, developed with the National Institutes of Health.
