This museum is great. The first thing I have to say is that when we were there this, the lady( SORRY I FORGOT YOUR NAME) who was working was a sweet and as nice as they came. She shared some great stories with us that brought tears to our eyes. The museum is full of great memorabilia. The MJ display... More

If you are early to a Carolina b-ball game, this is a great stop. In less than an hour you can take a stroll down memory lane thru the storied history of Carolina basketball. From the 1920 to Coach K's letter to Michael saying he was sorry for turning down dook to the current team, it is worth the trip.

What a cool Museum. It's not very large but it's got some great stuff inside. I really loved seeing the Roy Williams practice notes, the National Titles and the interactive video displays. It's free so there really no reason not to stop if you are in the area.

I have been three times and every time I love going to the UNC basketball museum. If you are a UNC fan you have to go. It's free and the memorabilia in there is amazing. The video at the beginning gets you excited to enter and see various video stands on players , coaches or important events. They show all... More

Whether or not you are an UNC fan you really ought to take a few hours and go through this. The greats are here... Jordan through today. It is free and the docent was very well schooled on interesting facts. I went with a local so didn't check for hours... Probably smart to do so.

But if you think you might, you absolutely will! If you're a fan of UNC basketball or even of college basketball in general you have to visit if you're in the area. Nicely designed exhibition of a long and storied history of Carolina basketball.

Visit here to get a taste of what UNC basketball is all about. Revisit golden moments in Tar Heel basketball history and educate yourself on legends like Michael Jordan and modern day stars like Tyler Hansbrough

This museum is spectacular! Extremely well done.. And I'm a Duke fan. The docent was super friendly and helpful. The movie with surround sound at the entrance gave me chills. UNC basketball history is incredible and very well displayed. More impressive than the basketball hall of fame, in my opinion. If you are a fan of NCAA basketball, this museum... More
