This place is amazing! It's a little difficult to find but once we were inside we were amazed at all the years it covered. We were there at least 2.5 hours and loved every minute of it.

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

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.
