We recently spent 3 hours touring the hall of fame. We thoroughly enjoyed the day. There were lots to learn and a lot of hands on fun to experience. My family even enjoyed shooting on the court on the ground level. It is best to go during the week, we went on a Friday and there was nobody there, we... More

Find your favorite players and coaches! The second floor guides you through the history of basketball. I loved seeing players jerseys, foot wear, etc. we loved the section of lockers where you...

Fun, interactive things and lots of cool memorabilia and facts. Kind of in the middle of nowhere, but worth the drive for a once in a lifetime experience.
