JERSEY CITY - It seems like just about everyone in New York and New Jersey wants to get in on the Super Bowl fever, including the Liberty Science Center in Jersey City.

It is featuring a visiting exhibit from the Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio. You can see the Lombardi Trophy, which is made by Tiffany's in New Jersey,

There are vintage football jerseys, like the one John Elway wore during "The Drive" when the Denver Broncos beat the Cleveland Browns to go to the Super Bowl.

You can see the evolution of the football helmet and learn all about the science of protecting players from concussions,

You can even try on a helmet to see what it feels like to be Peyton Manning.

Since some of this stuff might not interest the kids all that much, there are activities for them too. There they can kick like Matt Prater, although it is harder than it looks. They can also pass the ball and see if they can hit that tiny little target.
