If you go into the Penn State Hall of Fame/Museum, located on one corner of the stadium, they can tell you when the next tour of the stadium will be. It was via the tour that we were able to see inside the facility and get these photos.

THE GRASS ON THE FIELD IS NATURAL, NOT PLASTIC. It is Kentucky Bluegrass that is specially grown for the PSU stadium, although not in Kentucky. Furthermore, the endzone grass is grown at Penn State by the PSU Horticulture Department.

The stadium is the fourth largest in the United States. It seats 107,000, however its record was over 110,000 for a game against Nebraska.

Directions: The stadium is clearly visible from great distances on the campus.
