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.

A great exhibit in the halls/lobby of Phog Allen Fieldhouse. All sports represented, with an obvious emphasis on all their great athletes from the past. The only thing I was disappointed with was my inability to find the original handwritten rules of basketball from James Naismith.

A must-see for Jayhawk fans. A great display of KU Athletics history. And, it's always fun to see the crystal basketball :)

Being a KU grad I must admit that I am a little biased on all things KU. But you have to go here. It is the mecca of KU athletics. KU's basketball tradition is overwhelming but the other sports are so important as well. Good place to see it all. Rock Chalk!

Any Jayhawk has to stop by the Booth Family Hall of Athletics and Allen Fieldhouse - give yourself some time so you don't miss anything. Don't miss Max's ring collection!
