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

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
