The Newport Casino

A primary goal of the museum is to showcase the Newport Casino, the National Historic Landmark buildings and grounds in which the International Tennis Hall of Fame is located. Through the 2015 renovation, three magnificent fireplaces that had been covered by temporary walls for 25 years were revealed, complemented by original furnishings from the building, which was built in 1880.

The Roger Federer Hologram

A highlight of the museum is a holographic theatre in which visitors feel as though they are in the room with Roger Federer, one of the sport's all-time greatest champions. "It was an honor to be asked to be the hologram at the International Tennis Hall of Fame and I was quite happy to take on the project," commented Federer. "I've always had an interest in the history of our sport and I believe we've been fortunate to be able to learn from and build on that history. The Hall of Fame does a tremendous job of preserving our sport's history and celebrating it with the world."
