The Bowling Virtual Vault features artifacts from the collections of the International Bowling Museum and Hall of Fame (IBMHOF). You can find bowling in every corner of the globe, so naturally the IBMHOF has traveled that globe to capture the sport’s spirit and preserve its history! The Bowling Virtual Vault showcases some of the best of the IBMHOF’s finds. This online archive details bowling’s technological development, featuring centuries-old pins from collector Lin Kessler along with automated machines from bowling’s golden age. An assortment of vintage bowling balls, bags, shoes and shirts show off the sport’s fashionable flair, while collections on perfect games and All-Star teams celebrate some of the best to ever hit the lanes.
