  • This is one of the only locations in Springfield that I feel comfortable visiting to eat.. while not wondering if my car will be stole. Great restaurant choices!
  • For a basketball fan there is a lot to take in. I enjoyed learning more about the evolution of the game. The materials used and how rules evolved as it progressed. There are several interactive stations for kids. Just seeing the size of some of the shoes blows the mind. I really stress, only go if you are a fan.
  • Great time with family and friends. Something for everyone to enjoy. Exhibits and memorabilia were awesome.
  • Great place to see the historical players in the association. The sports radio is even there as well as a gift shop where you can buy tee shirts and other things.
  • Informative, honors history, interactive for all ages. Still seems to be improving further and second only to baseball hof as a sports hall experience.
