My daughter played basketball and really wanted to see the museum. I was luke warm about it, but the hosts were friendly, the history and exhibits were really interesting, and we got to play some basketball too, just like old times.

Easy to find, easy and free parking. The museum has a good mix of presentations -- videos, still photos, uniforms, etc. Love that they have the All American Redheads car!

We went through the museum on 7/26/14. We arrived early in the morning and at the time we were there, we were the only ones going on the tour. It was nice because it was quiet and we were able to spend as much time as we wanted at each part of the tour. The part of the tour where... More

Upon entering the building you see a beautiful sculpture of the past the present and the future of women's basketball. The museum is well laid out and was very informative.

It is a nice place, especially for the women's basketball fan. There is a 17 minutes video and various displays of women's basketball history including pro and college. There is quite of lot of history too. Old uniforms, pictures, how the rules have changed and the players! The lower floor has a few basketball hoops and balls. It was nice... More

My first time to Knoxville, and as a long-time women's basketball fan, I knew this had to be one of my stops. The staff was very welcoming, and knowledgeable. Very reasonable entrance fee (under $10). I loved the introduction video, I learned a LOT eventhough I thought I knew the history pretty well. I enjoyed the historical timeline, locker room... More

If you enjoy basketball this is a must see. Otherwise a drive by will probably be enough to satisfy as the building and location are noteworthy.

Great 15 minute video of women's basketball history to start the experience. All championship teams are represented equally. Interactive displays, a very friendly and accommodating staff, affordable and gift shop items. Downstairs offers basketball courts and additional interactive experiences, i.e. shooting different types of passes, vertical leap heights, etc. A must stop if you follow the sport.
