Start with a short history film on women's basketball then self guided tour. Very interesting. I really enjoyed reading about each of the inductees. Did. To partake in the interactive activities on the first floor, but most would enjoy that also. $5.50 Senior admission.

I had my daughter's 14th birthday party here years ago. I decided to visit again. This place was amazing. They have kept their items up to date and their historical presentations are accurate and interesting. Great place for the entire family to visit. Plenty of parking. Easy access. Convenient hours; low admission rates.

It was very interactive. I went with my Nana and her three sisters who all played basketball growing up. They had attractions for all ages.

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.
