From the 10-ton, 30-foot-high basketball that sits on top of the building to the life-like animatronic figure of Senda Berenson, "the mother of women's basketball," this will not be your typical hall of fame visit.

It was on honor to be able to tour the Women's Basketball Hall of Fame today. The strides made in women's basketball throughout history is amazing. The uniforms were jaw dropping and the hair styles were "dip-pity do! Wonderful wealth of history.

My husband and I had been talking about going to the WBHoF since before we were married, but for different reasons we hadn't yet. Finally we went, celebrating our 11 year wedding anniversary. We had an absolute blast! The staff (Merrier Rogers) was incredible, and we loved the at-your-own-pace setup. Our favorite part however was the basketball court. Even though... More

A great attraction for any basketball fan. Because of the relatively recent development of the women's game, you get quite a full history of its development. There were some interesting interactive exhibits. I enjoyed the one where you are "in the locker room" with Geno Auriemma or Pat Summitt as they give a locker room speech. (I picked up some... More

I wouldnt get too excited unless you are a big Womens Basketball fan. I will say it is very clean, neat and well put together. The exhibits are very informative and some even entertaining.

The women's basketball hall of fame is a good place to see if you like sports. Very interesting. wasn't very crowded so you could take your time and look at everything. Start off with a 10 minute movie on the history then the rest is a self guided tour. At the end you can shoot some basketball downstairs.

I enjoyed the opportunity to see the history of women's basketball chronicled in one place, it was especially moving to visit this week, with the recent passing of a legend of basketball, Pat Summit. The exhibits are well laid out, a lot of history, in a bastion of sports mania, Knoxville.

Quote from their own site sums it up - "From the 10-ton, 30-foot-high basketball that sits on top of the building to the life-like animatronic figure of Senda Berenson, "the mother of women's basketball," this will not be your typical hall of fame visit." Unfortunately, this was true for me. I have really enjoyed almost all of my many other... More

This is a great museum if you're a fan of basketball, men or women's. It's also great if you enjoy history. It's incredible to see where this game started to where it has come to today. All of the great players and coaches are there to see and hear their stories. You can "huddle" with the coaches on the sidelines... More

We visited the Hall of Fame the day after Connecticut Women won their fourth straight NCAA Championship. It was a good atmosphere to take into the Hall of Fame! The beginning movie was well done and the exhibits are all informative and well done. It is worth a look if you are going to Knoxville.
