ROSEMONT, Ill. (AP) — The Big Ten Conference is set to open its doors for a new digital museum at its headquarters in Illinois.

Conference officials have announced that the so-called "Big Ten Experience" museum will be open to the public on Saturday, June 7 in Rosemont. It has 13 interactive exhibits that showcase the conference's notable players and coaches since 1896.

Some of the exhibits include a challenge where museum-goers can attempt to catch a football, stop a soccer ball or block a hockey puck. Another lets patrons listen to the radio broadcast of game-winning shots on a hardwood court from the spot where players shot the ball.

Admission to the museum is free. It's open from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. on weekdays and 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on weekends.
