I didn't know what to except - but I really liked it.

Carolina basketball fans will rejoice in seeing the six national championship awards, along with other memorabilia -- jerseys, basketball shoes and the like -- in this on-campus museum. Free and compact; won't take long to go through, but filled with great memories.

Nice free thing to do if you have an hour. Lots of history and great memorabilia. Easy parking across the street but meters only take quarters so come prepared

We came upon this gem when we went to visit the Dean Dome. If you like basketball this is a must see. We were very impressed with what was chosen to be added to the museum.
