Description:

The College Basketball Experience (CBE) and National Collegiate Basketball...

The College Basketball Experience (CBE) and National Collegiate Basketball Hall of Fame is the nation's celebration for men's collegiate basketball.

The CBE is one of the most highly interactive sports facilities in the nation and was awarded a top-5 interactive museum designation by Wired Magazine in 2008.

The CBE is the anti sports hall of fame. You may sweat here!

Fun for the entire family as well as one of the most in-demand special event venues in the region.

The CBE and National Collegiate Basketball Hall of Fame was established in October 2007 and founded by The National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC). It is owned and operated by the NABC Foundation, Inc.

The different drills and stations set up in the College Basketball Experience are so much fun. We especially liked the vertical jump, the free throw station, the dunk hoops, and the passing game. Definitely wear athletic clothes and shoes. We didn't realize how interactive it would be, so we were wearing sweaters and boots and jeans. We would have had... More

We visited with our 17, 5, & 3 year old boys. There are several fantastic interactive exhibits. They all loved shooting hoops for the afternoon at the different games. The little boys weren't quite big enough to participate in most of the activities but they enjoyed running around chasing basketballs. The teenager and adults loved playing basketball. There is small... More

Had a great day here. Very nice and clean and well managed. Leave your pocket knives in the car - you will be scanned. Lots of fun activities for everyone. Highly recommended.

Lots of great activities for the basketball lover. Many interactive activities where you can test your basketball skills- free throws, three pointers, slam dunk, buzzer beaters, passing. Probably best for kids junior high or older but there was one section reserved for smaller children. Wasn't very busy on a Saturday after lunch but started picking up as we were leaving... More

I went with my son who plays ball. He was in heaven with all the interactive activities. Not what we were expecting but a great way to spend a day. I loved the history and hall of fame.

We took a high school group to the College Basketball Experience over DECA weekend. The kids and I were blown away by how awesome this was! We all got to play basketball and compete with each other in free throw contests and the interactive displays. I would highly recommend taking your kids here. It kept our kids entertained for hours.

We went to the museum yesterday and had a great time! The museum is very interactive and I would suggest dressing for a game of ball. They have video,games, free throw machines, full basketball courts, tons of information on the game, the coaches and players. There is a little theater that features a different coach every month. My only complaint... More

My son and husband were in heaven! Great basketball challenges: 3pt shot, passing, free throw and more. Join a pick up game, try your announcing skills in the ESPN booth. Very reasonable price.

It was a fun experience to see the wing span of players and the heights. The baskets are at levels for all ages. They also have courts to play full court. We got to announce on a TV broadcast. The blue chairs in the theater were awesome! The downfall is their gift shop, which had a poor selection.
