BERGEN COUNTY, N.J. (WCBS 880) -- The New Jersey Hall of Fame will move to a permanent home at American Dream Meadowlands next spring.

Until now, the exhibits have been housed in a mobile museum, but the future home in the Meadowlands will hopefully change everything.

"I don't think a non-profit museum can ask for a better location. They are triple five companies. The owner's expecting upwards of $40 million visitors every year,” said Hall of Fame president Steve Edwards.

A groundbreaking ceremony is scheduled for Wednesday morning at the hall’s mobile museum, at the former IZOD Center. The Hall of Fame says the new 16,000 square foot space will be complete with state of the art technology and updates.

“We're gonna have the latest in technology. We'll have a hologram theater,” Edwards said. “We'll have a Jersey Pride movie theater, even a virtual reality theater.”

Current inductees include Frank Sinatra, Thomas Edison and Yogi Berra. More than 140 people have been inducted into the New Jersey Hall of Fame since it opened in 2008.
