For a Tarheel fan this is the 2nd best place to be except for a game. Everything you need to know and see about UNC history is in this museum. Best of all it's free but always great to give a donation to keep it available for future generations

As you may know this is ACC country and Carolina and Duke lead the rest of the teams.......unfortunately Carolina has had a round season but you never know they might pull out. Their museum is proof of the great coaching.

Neat Place full of Tar Heel Basketball History
Dec 2019
I took my kids here before attending a basketball game. As a Tar Heel alumni, it was really fun to explore the history of the basketball program. It brought back so many memories! It only took us about an hour to complete so it was a perfect way to spend the afternoon before a game.

Very nice museum. Relatively small so it only takes 1-2 hours. Recommend for any basketball fan. Starts with a movie but it was not working during our visit.

Fun and interactive museum next door to the Dean E Smith Center. Spend 30 mins or 2 hours reading the history of UNC Basketball. Great displays and exhibits to view.

Inspirational and Educational

Even if you are not a fan of the UNC Tarheels Basketball program you will be impressed by tour of this museum. You are surrounded by historical happenings that brought changes to all of collegiate basketball. Coach Smith was an inspiring coach and a phenomenal life lessons teacher. You will leave the museum with new found respect for this man that believed in his God, his university and those young men that were lucky enough to play on his teams. He is the type of coach and teacher that we need to see in the classroom today. Not to mention he was the only man to keep Michael Jordan controlled on the basketball court

Great museum for Tar Heel fans
Aug 2019
Be sure to wear UNC blue when visiting the museum-- great experience reading about the winning streaks-- wished there was more live video coverage to augment all the memorabilia. Don't miss this museum when touring UNC campus!
