It needs to be updated. Some of the writings on the wall are difficult to read. I heard it is about to undergo a major renovation.

I loved everything about the place. I bought the tickets as a surprise for my husband, kids and I to do a family day. It is very organized and definitely fun seeing all the old uniforms etc. Plus learning that basketball originated from Massachusetts is pretty cool.

This could be a fun and interesting place but alas it is not. From the long, dark, uninviting entrance to the disinterested and unhelpful staff to the boring exhibits the hall of fame was a big disappointment. The best thing was shooting hoops. We enjoyed trying out all the different baskets. The gift shop is nice too.

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.
