GREAT TIME reliving Hoosiers
Jun 2021
Super fun to visit FOR FREE ( a free will donation is an option) the Gym used to film the movie Hoosiers. The SUPER nice woman, who is a board member, showed us around and encouraged us to take pictures. She was a wealth of information. We shot baskets for awhile and had a great time. TShirts were available and they even had larger sizes for the tall men in our lives!!!!

The Field of Dreams of basketball
May 2021
Rex, a former HS bball player, coach and administrator who knows a ton about IN HS Bball and its cool old-school gyms, gave us a great tour on a Tuesday afternoon in May. We had the place to ourselves. Learned a lot about the history of the gym, how it came to be used in the movie, the actors and where they came from, and current games held there. A fantastic place to visit if you're in the Indianapolis area or driving through on I-70...definitely worth a stop even if you've only seen the movie once long ago.

Such a wonderful place to visit.

My tour guide Merv was very friendly and informative. Gave a great tour about the history of the gym, and the movie. Luckily when I went we had the place to ourselves. It’s awesome that the guides let you shoot hoops in the iconic gym

Would be an awesome place to play a game in. Highly recommend this place for any basketball fan.

Hoosiers Gym a MUST for basketball fans and historic sports movie fans!

"Field of Dreams" for basketball fanatics!
Amazing stop in (can you believe it!) KNIGHTSTOWN, Indiana. My son grew up on this movie and it was super cool to see the gym, bleachers, lockeroom just as they appeared in movie. Unbelievably friendly knowledgeable man running the place. Easy to get to off route 70. Be sure to stop in town for food and baked goods. Charming place!!!

Wow! Having watched and loved the movie “Hoosiers” I was thrilled to learn the Hoosier gym was close by while visiting in Indiana. The tour was wonderful. It was a highlight of my trip! I would encourage you to visit.

I’m still in shock over this visit. This is a must-visit place. Only 40 minutes from Indy. Friendly staff. I had the time of my life.

We are big basketball fans. My oldest son had to be in Indianapolis to take a test for his job, so I went with him. He told me on our way that we would be about 40 miles to Knightstown, and could we go there. It was a little out of our way back to Mississippi, but oh worth every minute of it. As we walked in we were greeted by 2 of nicest and kindest men. They ask where we were from and begin talking to us about the gym. The older gentleman took us on the tour of the gym and gave us some history about it. After the tour my 24 year old son played basketball with some local kids who come there to shoot basketball. We had the best time and enjoyed every minute of it. I am already planning on bringing my husband back , who use to coach basketball, and my youngest son who plays basketball. We will definitely be making a road trip back to this place. I would totally recommend if you are close to this area , make an effort and go to the Hoosier Gym in Knightstown, it will be worth every minute of your stay.
I would recommend you checking to make sure that the gym is opened before you drive that far out, because the hours are in the afternoon and if it is rented out you are not allowed to visit, plus when we were there in June they were getting ready to do some renovations.

Great Family Experience, Wonderful March Memories
Mar 2019 • Family
Gym was open on Saturday for public shoot around. I believe the gym is open for basketball more often than not, which was an incredible experience for my 10-year-old son, who was raised on the movie. Gym is still in same shape/look as it was in film, small area of nostalgia as you walk in. Great photo ops and a place to increase your (and your children's) love for grassroots Hoosier basketball. This is a "must visit" for casual fans to basketball historians. So grateful to Knightstown for the way they've kept uf the gym and for the access they give to the general public.
