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.

The history of woman's basketball. I know the Hall of Fame is in Knoxville but it should not be a satellite shop for the UT Vols.

We enjoyed the facility; neat and well laid out. It was a quiet day so we got to enjoy shooting hoops at the end of the tour. The historical video was good and we walked away with a lot of insight and admiration for the former players who started it all.

We held our daughters reception at here and it was wonderful. Mike and Mary worked with the staff to get exactly what they wanted and the staff was unbelievably helpful. The venue was beautiful and easy to figure with about 170 guest with buffet dinner, bar, appetizers, band, dancing, - there was a lot going on. We just could not... More

We spent an enjoyable hour and a half touring this museum and hall of fame. The people working in the facility were top notch and very helpful. The exhibits included such things as the evolution of the rules in the women's game, a chance to "sit in" on a number of coach's pre-game and halftime pep talks, and numerous uniforms... More

You can tell that this attraction was built by a non-profit organization. It's very informative, but unless you are fascinated by Women's basketball, it's a little boring. Worth the time to see. Just expect a museum instead of an attraction.
