J. Robert Donnelly Husky Heritage Sports Museum

2384 Alumni Drive
Storrs Mansfield, CT 06269

Located in the new and expanded UConn Alumni Center in the heart of the University of Connecticut's main campus in Storrs, the Husky Heritage Sports Museum is the ultimate library documenting the wide-ranging successes of Connecticut's athletic programs.

The state-of-the-art design and layout of the 2,700 square foot Husky Heritage Sports Museum, named after benefactor and 1940 Connecticut basketball and football captain J. Robert (Bob) Donnelly (shown at right), vividly captures all of the energy, excitement and enthusiasm that is associated with "Huskymania". Donnelly passed away on Sept. 26, 2005.

The visitors' UConn experience begins with the University of Connecticut "National Champions" Gallery. This unique museum addition, located in the entrance foyer of the Husky Heritage Sports Museum, was unveiled in December of 2004 and will serve as a permanent tribute to all University of Connecticut varsity teams that climbed to the mountaintop and earned the right to be called National Champions.

The J. Robert Donnelly Husky Heritage Sports Museum is open free of charge  to  the  general  public  during  regular  business  hours  (8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday-Friday) at the UConn Alumni Center. The Museum is also open two hours prior to men's and women's basketball games at the Harry A. Gampel Pavilion.
