This is a one of a kind museum/interactive experience. Tons of basketball related games and history as well. Loved the field trip I went on with my kiddos.

This is a great place to visit and learn some history on basketball. There are 2 levels and activities to keep you busy for quite a few hours. Don't forget to wear sneakers. Fun for little kids through adults. They have a lot of staff supervision too so no need to worry about safety.

We have an 11 year old boy and a 13 yr old girl. Both kids really enjoyed themselves at the College Basketball Experience. There are many interactive games to play alone or as a family. The day we went was a rainy day and this was a perfect fit for our family. Staff was friendly and helpful. The only thing... More

Our family with two teenagers visited and had an absolute blast! None of us are great bb-players but that didn't stop us from thoroughly enjoying our time there. We played every game available and several times. You just can't stop yourself. We got a nice workout as a bonus. We practically had to drag our kids out of there after... More

I love basketball so I loved the college basketball experience. There is so much to do and all of it is so fun. You absolutely have to see this if you love basketball.

We were very disappointed to see that the only women represented in The College Basketball Experience were cheerleaders. I'm pretty sure that women also play college basketball. The games are all basically full sized variations of pop-a-shot. My daughter, a hopeful collegiate basketball player, was also disappointed that the balls available for the full court did not include women's regulation... More

Spring break 2014 was excellent. Including the basketball experience was such a highlight we did it twice.

The College Basketball Experience is a unique activity for visitors to Kansas City. It is located within the Sprint Center downtown and allows visitors to try their hand at various basketball games, from a full-court matchup, to trying to sink as many 3-pointers as you can within a 1 minute time limit and more. This makes it fun for people... More

We have two kids, 9 and 12, and they both enjoyed this place. Lot's of basketball activities for the kids and lot's of history for basketball enthusiasts. We stayed about 90 minutes...you can stay an hour or all day...just depends on how long you want to play basketball. Would return and do it again.

For such a short price, you can have a whole afternoon filled with fun and exercise not only for kids but adults also. So many different activities, exciting stations, cool facts, bright lights and music. Definitely a place to visit when in Kansas City.
