In honor of Arthur Ashe’s 1968 victory at the US Open, the New York Hall of Science presents the “Arthur Ashe Inspirational Tour,” opening Saturday and running through Sept. 9.
Also included will be educational and recreational touchscreens that will explore Ashe’s legacy and allow guests to answer tennis trivia questions while playing an action-packed tennis match.
Besides winning the US Open 45 years ago, Ashe also earned titles at the Australian Open in 1970 and Wimbledon in 1975.
Ashe died in 1993 after he contracted HIV through a blood transfusion.
General admission to the New York Hall of Science will be free during the run of the exhibit. The Hall of Science is open Monday through Friday from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
