Perfect size - not too over whelming like some museums may be. Kids loved shooting around on the court!

It's recommended for teens that are into basketball. My oldest read all about it and was into everything, while my second son just wanted to do the interactive activities.y boys spent most of their day in the basketball court.

Definitely worth the trip, especially for fans of the game. Good for kids too not for the very young though.

If your child is under age 10, they may want to just indulge in the many interactive displays only. However, there are so many cool artifacts on display, you'll want to take your time and no active child will wish to cooperate.

From Our Editors

Celebrating more than 100 years of basketball history, the halls and exhibits of the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame honor the players, coaches, referees, and others who helped the game grow to an internationally beloved sport. There are shrines dedicated to more than 300 Hall of Famers, and the 40,000-square-foot basketball megaplex also houses more than 70 interactive exhibits with audio and video components, limited-run tributes to standout teams and players, and special events. The Hall of Fame provides an outlet for freshly inspired visitors to emulate the giants of the sport: a full-size center court, where they can practice alley-oops and half-court slam dunks or attend clinics taught by players and coaches. On the way back to the car, many guests pause for a photograph next to the towering silver sphere that punctuates the buildings' exterior.

Named for James A. Naismith, the inventor of the sport, the Hall of Fame stands just "a midrange jump shot" from the site of the original game. Played on December 21, 1891, the first contest tallied a final score of one basket to zero, prompting Dr. Naismith to remove the bee's nests from the backboards.
