We stayed at the MGM and walked to the Hall of Fame. You start on the 3rd floor and make your way down to the basketball court where you are allowed to shoot around. The interactive displays are fun, but some are outdated.

Doesn’t quite measure up to Baseball HOF in Cooperstown but a nice museum in its own right. Top floor are the actual pictures/plaques of the inductees. Found this section to be a bit underwhelming—a lot of inductees crammed into a small space. Still interesting though....More

It wasn't as great as I expected it to be, but all of the history was very interesting. To be honest, I'm not even a basketball fan but I still enjoyed myself.
