My first full visit to this wonderful hall of fame (had an abbreviated stop once before), and I could have stayed there for hours. You don't need to be a Kansas Jayhawks fan to appreciate all the offerings. So much history, artifacts and richness of tradition makes this a winner. And while you're there, go next door to the DeBruce... More

Went to a game and walked thru the hall of athletics prior to the game. The new addition housing the "Rules of Basketball" is very nice, the ramps were really nice.

My son and I enjoyed visiting this place before the KU game. There is so much history with KU basketball and this is a neat way of putting it all together to see. I would like to go back and visit again and read things more. There is spaces for kids also, so the whole family could go

This is a great place to wonder around after a big win. A must see for any basketball game. Not only does it represent KUs tradition and legacy, but there is so much about the sport of basetball itself.

This is a free exhibit. I checked the hours and we attempted to go prior to a KU home game. The problem with that is that it's closed before home games and doesn't open until the doors open about an hour or two prior to tip-off. Even at that there was plenty of time to browse the exhibits. I think... More

If you're going to a Kansas men's/women's basketball game, you must wander through the Hall of Athletics. The glories of past KU athletes and titles and trophies are on display from over 100 years. There are hands on exhibits for the younger and younger-minded sets and post game network sports reports ongoing during your visit.

A must see for all basketball fans. This place holds the original first set of rules for basketball. Home of the KU family! Definite must see if you are in the area.

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!
