Description: The College Basketball Experience (CBE) and National Collegiate Basketball...
The College Basketball Experience (CBE) and National Collegiate Basketball Hall of Fame is the nation's celebration for men's collegiate basketball. The CBE is one of the most highly interactive sports facilities in the nation and was awarded a top-5 interactive museum designation by Wired Magazine in 2008. The CBE is the anti sports hall of fame. You may sweat here! Fun for the entire family as well as one of the most in-demand special event venues in the region. The CBE and National Collegiate Basketball Hall of Fame was established in October 2007 and founded by The National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC). It is owned and operated by the NABC Foundation, Inc.

We got stuck in KC due to weather to the north and needed something to do. The CBE was perfect! The numerous basketball skills courts and hoops, as well as a bit of history and the Hall of Fame filed up a good three hours for our 5-year-old. Our 10-year-old would have stayed even longer if he could. Even mom... More

Fantastic experience and a great museum. If you are a college basketball fan this is a must do, basketball memories come to life. Kids will also love this place, things to do and see for every age. Really enjoyed the interactive games.

I recently went to the College Basketball Experience with my two nephews, age 9 and 15. It is in the Sprint Center, and we paid $5 to park in the adjacent parking lot. There is some street parking, but limited times on weekdays. There are lots of shooting competitions, automatically keeping track of time and score. We enjoyed the free... More

In interactive area for the kids is great. But if you are coming for the hall of fame. Very huge disappointment. Nothing nostalgic at all. Not worth the money!

Thank you for your comment. The National Collegiate Basketball Hall of Fame is exactly where it is...in The College Basketball Experience. The "Hall" notes the greatest college players, coaches, teams and contributors the sport has offered and counting. The CBE and National Collegiate Basketball Hall of Fame is not a traditional shoes, uniforms, plaques behind glass cases. We have never... More

Wonderful exhibits outlining the history of college basketball. There are also numerous stations and drills for basketball players. We'll worth the price of admission.

This was a terrible disappointment. Took our boys ages 4, 6, 8, & 12. All the courts were being used. The kids were staying in the 3 point the area & not giving others a turn. In the free throw area, they were playing 3 on 3. So, we went down to the lower area. There's an area for little... More

Lots to do, about 2 hours of shooting basketballs. Interesting facts all through out. Simulated Sports broadcasting is fun, get to see yourself on TV. Our second visit, would recommend mostly to families with kids between 10-16

Located alongside the Sprint Center, this is a great venue to visit!! Both my husband and our son, who play hoop, loved all the areas to walk around and interact with. We could have spent much more time here, if there had not been another activity planned later the same day. You can be a part of so many "hands... More
