From the 10-ton, 30-foot-high basketball that sits on top of the building to the life-like animatronic figure of Senda Berenson, "the mother of women's basketball," this will not be your typical hall of fame visit.

If you love the Lady Vols like I do then this is a must see when you are in Knoxville, you realize how many great women's players there have been from all over and how wonderful it is to have this in Knoxville

Greater appreciation for the game now that we've learned a lot about women's basketball. Lots to look at, but be ready to read. The basketball court for guest to play on was a lot of fun too.

This place was very interesting to learn about the early stages of women's basketball. The tour is self guided, which is a nice feature. Everyone had a good time.

We actually had fun at this place. The Women's Basketball Hall of Fame was a very cool place to visit and to learn some things about women's basketball we had an audio tour which is a self-guided walk through and we had a lot of fun.

Comprehensive and dedicated center of information for those interested in the women who have made a notable contribution to their area of basketball. Useful gift shop for buying presents. Ask the person on duty where the remaindered, clearance and discounted items are.

I use to work for the city of Knoxville & was on duty here during the building of the Hall of Fame, a great place to learn about the great women of the sport.

The Women's Basketball Hall of Fame is a wonderful museum that showcases the progresssion and the history of women in basketball. The tour is self guided and starts with a short film.
