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 new Booth Hall features the original rules of the game, plus memorable quotes, and a nice cafe and gift shop.

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

I found this a basic trophy case but enjoyed very much learning about the history of basketball as started here. It was also fun to test our wing span against famous KU basketball grads and to see the inside of Allen Fieldhouse. Otherwise reminded me of a big high school brag exhibit, mostly basketball.

I learned so much about the history of college basketball as well as Kansas basketball. My best friend who wasn't really into college basketball but came with me on my trip here is now in love with the Kansas Jayhawks. The experience was amazing here I would recommend saving a bunch of money so you can buy all new KU... More
