Received an offline tour, this place is 'money' for the players, what's behind the doors in the players lounge is pure 'money'. A lot of history here, built in 1955 and originally having a dirt track on the first level concourse.

The displays are very professionally done and in the basketball area there is video and interactive activities. A walk through should provide something of interest to any sports fan.... More

Every time we have friends in town, we take them to Mass Street and we take them to the booth hall of Athletics. Allen Fieldhouse is basketball's sanctuary, and the booth hall does an incredible job of explaining just how it got that title. Oh - and it's free!

Drove 8 hours from MN with buddies to go to first game at the Phog. Not disappointed. Spend a long time walking around looking a exhibits. Very cool if you like college sports and a must if a Jayhawks fan. Really more of a small museum. History, trophies, pictures and interactive exhibits. Like comparing wing span, shoe and hand size...

If you have never been to Allen Fieldhouse, where this Booth Family Hall of Athletics is located it is a MUST! A bucket list item for sure. This place is filled with so much history of not only basketball but every sport. This is real history and a place that will hold a memory forever.
