The Big Ten Conference is set to open its doors for a new digital museum at it's headquarters in Illinois. Conference officials say the so-called "Big Ten Experience" museum in Rosemont will be open to the public tomorrow. 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
