Can't wait to take my son who is a basketball fan to see the marvelous exhibits here. It's fun to see the well-known star players who went on to the NBA from Carolina

This museum has the perfect blend of displays, word, and video. Even if you're not a Carolina Basketball fan, you'll find it really interesting and just a great tribute to so many quality people that are Carolina Basketball. Make sure you make time for this stop!

If you ever have time to get to a game early please go check out this historical landmark. Every Tar Heel fan needs to witness this amazing collection of Tar Heel artifacts. Even non-Tar Heel fans can appreciate the items to view here.

If you are interested in college basketball and know about the UNC TarHeels, this is the place to go. Everything you ever wanted to know about the TarHeels is at your fingertips. It is quite an adoration of the program and some of its greatest players and coaches.

This is a first class (just like the Tar Heels) museum and a must see for all fans...even dookies will be in awe of what they see. The memorabilia that's on display is incredible and I didn't want to leave...had to be dragged out. The videos were also great and I will be back to visit again the next time... More

This is a stop not to be missed when in Chapel Hill. The many successful basketball players from the men's team who have gone on to success in the NBA are honored here. The history is depicted, and the memorabilia displayed. Be sure to allow a stop here when on campus!
