  • We stayed here in October of 2017. If you like basketball, it is a must-see. All persons who are in the Hall of Fame and various t-shirts, balloons and other objects related to this sport and ceded by the same stars can be seen. And you can play on Center Court at the end of the visit.

  • It was fun. Cool facts to read and very well displayed information. Exciting activities such as shooting basketballs in the gym and virtual basketball against NBA players was fun. The only issues were that half the gym was closed and the virtual basketball wasn't as serious of a game as it was funny.
  • Finally visited this place. Good to see the history of ball and big moments in the college, international and professional levels. It's also fun to test your bball knowledge when you have "I knew that" moments.
  • The experience was amazing, the whole place is clean , some very interesting facts about basketball history and show casing the past players and present players , it's was very amazing experience! The whole place didn't take very long to look at everything , the staff was very friendly, the whole place was amazing !! Highly recommended coming to the hall of the fame if you ever been before !
  • Had a wonderful time with my son who is a huge NBA fan. Lots of interesting things to see and history to experience.
  • From a West Virginia fan, they covered Jerry West solid. Good info on everything basketball. If you have the time, give the free throw contest a try!
