If you were not a fan, you will be! Home of Kirk Heinrich and so many others. I had no idea how many professional athletes I've seen in the big leagues and never knew they were a Jayhawk. The history preserved here is astonishing. Definitely recommend visiting.

It's hard to put into words how special this place is to college basketball history. The original handwritten rules of basketball are housed here. The tradition and atmosphere are 2nd to none. A must see for any college basketball fan. Game days are electric! Rock Chalk go KU!

My husband is a big KU basketball fan and I reserved a free tour of the Booth Hall last Friday at 11 am (only available during the week). Our tour guide gave us some information about the building and displays but he seemed more like a student volunteer than a guide. The doors to Allen Fieldhouse were open so we... More

The history of college sports, especially basketball, is rich in KU lore. This Hall of Athletics is a must-see for sports fanatics. It's free of charge and has outstanding exhibits. It's not huge so you can cover everything in 30-60 minutes. The Hall provides a fascinating look into Kansas' past and a welcome break from the mugginess of Kansas in... More

This is a one of a kind field house. This is the home of the Kansas Jayhawk basketball team. It also houses historical artifacts of KU athletic personalities and programs.

The Booth Hall of Athletics has a lot of great memorbilia and displays for diehard Jayhawk Fans. Some of the displays are interactive and others have things you won't see anywhere else. Of course a big plus is that it is free but be sure to watch where you park. Some of the lots have restricted parking during the day... More
