Easy to get to and entertaining for all ages! I had 2 boys under 10 and they had so much fun with the interactive exhibits, especially the sportscaster box! We were able to get thru everything in less than 2 hours, including shooting hoops. Great weekend activity without a lot of stress!

We really liked the basketball hall of fame. Just enough to do in an afternoon without being overwhelmed. The only down side to our visit is that the center court was closed the day we went. Would probably have been 5 stars if we could have done that.

All of the staff were friendly and accommodating. The content wasn't as exciting as I had expected. It was fun for a few hours.

Seemed disorganized to me. Too much to absorb. No place to sit. Unable to use the hoops the day we were there. Not kid friendly at all.

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.
