A tremendous tribute to a sport so near and dear to basketball fans, not just in North Carolina but throughout the nation. If you love college basketball you'll love this place! Make sure to put enough time aside to enjoy it all. Even though it doesn't look large the collection is extensive so be prepared. The movie to start the... More

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.

If your a Tar Heel basketball fan this is a most see experience. The museum is free and there are lots of memorabilia and facts to see and view. Trophy's, basketballs, uniforms, suits, you name it it's here. My favorite is the letter from Coach K to Michael Jordan acknowledging his decision to not attend Duke. When you enter the... More

Great place to get all of your Carolina Basketball history! Family loved it. Nice 4+ minute movie to start off and then all of the memorabilia you can want. Great layout. Love spending time here. A must for any Tar Heel fan.

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!

Soo very disappointed to finally visit Chapel Hill only to find almost no traces of Michael Jordan at UNC. Went to the campus bookstore to look for some memorabilia and there was nothing...Went to the Carolina Basketball Museum and it was very good...I enjoyed it but was once again struck by the fact that there is virtually no Michael Jordan...

I took my son here on our trip to visit family in NC. He is an avid Tar Heel fan! I found it very interesting and is worth a stop if you are in the area!

The tradition of the University's basketball program is presented on full display. Every facet of the basketball history is presented, from recruiting battles, epic games won and lost to prestigious rivals and all the legendary players, etc... A good learning opportunity for anyone who likes sport.
