NFL Experience In Times Square To Close Sept. 30

September 20, 2018 - 9:29 am


The NFL Experience is getting cut.

The interactive museum in Times Square, which opened in November, has announced it will be closing at the end of the month.

"We unfortunately have to end our season early," a message on its website reads. "We will be permanently closing our doors on September 30th, 2018.

"Opening a football destination in the heart of New York City has been quite an adventure! We hope you had a blast going from the practice field to the Super Bowl, measuring up against our sport’s greatest champions, learning complex game strategies and even celebrating with the Vince Lombardi trophy."

The NFL Experience was a joint venture between the league and Cirque du Soleil.

A Cirque du Soleil spokesperson told the New York Post that, "Despite our team’s dedicated efforts, we were simply unsuccessful at meeting the financial goals."

The Post reported that more than 90 employees will be out of work.

Anyone who purchased tickets for after Sept. 30 may exchange them for an earlier date. Otherwise, refunds will be automatically applied to the original payment method.
