  • Good time, definitely worth checking out.
  • To learn you must experience it first hand. Go here and your kids, family, athletes will leave knowing more about the game, the history of it and experience whether or not it is a sport that could interest them, before you sink money into the next basketball league!
  • MUST DO FOR BASKETBALL FANS. The museum part was alright but the "experiences" were awesome! Great for kids too. Everything was top notch and maintained very well. Try dunking on the short rims or becoming a "real" game analyst! It's a blast!
  • Great time for the kids. Good venue for tourney championship games
  • Good place to hang out for an afternoon if you have a kid who loves basketball.
