I loved to see the history of Carolina Basketball. I remember these players, these coaches and they were a part of growing up in Eastern NC. It was a great visit for parents and kids.

The UNC Basketball Museum is world class. It is a well done display of the history this storied program in a first class setting. Admission is free - which is very nice. My son and I toured in about an hour - which included us watching about four of the videos. The Dean Smith and Michael Jordan sections are -... More

The Carolina Basketball Museum is on the University of North Carolina campus, right near the Dean Smith Center where the games are played. I brought friends here who are into basketball and they loved it. There are all sorts of artifacts from past and present players. There is a special glass case just for Michael Jordon who went to university... More

You do not want to miss this! You do not have to be a UNC fan to enjoy or appreciate this. I am a SC Gamecock fan and decided to see what it offered. I was impressed from the moment I walked in until I walked out. You move and enjoy at your own pace. It starts with a film... More

Many jerseys on display, rings, notes rom Michael Jordan's high school coaches, etc. Very, very well done, and a nice walk through this part of campus with lots to see. Be... More

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.
