Robert Buckley Theater

The Robert Buckley Theater allows visitors to watch NCAA championship matches and other videos. Buckley wrestled for Hall of Fame coach Bob Siddens at Waterloo West High School and served as a member of the National Wrestling Hall of Fame’s Board of Governors for many years. Bob was instrumental in the renovation projects at both the Dan Gable Museum and the National Wrestling Hall of Fame and his company, Kirk Gross, provided all of the furnishings for both facilities.

Our Mission: To honor the sport of wrestling by preserving its history, recognizing extraordinary individual achievements, and inspiring future generations
