We traveled from TN to watch the ballgame. Allen Fieldhouse is a great place to watch a game. Wished we had won. The KU fans were super nice and the place was LOUD!

Just inside the entrance to Allen Fieldhouse (referred to by some as the "Cathedral of Basketball"), this place showcases Kansas University's history of basketball, going back to its invention in the 1890s by KU's first coach, James Naismith.

The Booth Family Hall offers a nice tribute and history of KU athletics and it is fittingly located in the Allen Fieldhouse which has been a venue for great moments in KU sports history.

Very interesting to visit and go back in time to the beginning of sports play at the university. Would go back to see what I missed!

A visit to Lawrence could not be complete without a visit of Allen. It is presented with all of the great achievements of Kansas and their phenomenal program.

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.
