The interactive parts of the experience were really amazing. I love playing basketball, so I tried all of the games. The nostalgia of college basketball just oozes as you go from exhibit to exhibit and recall all of the great moments of college basketball over...More

This was a neat little experience that I stumbled upon while strolling the Power and Light district. Not a whole lot of substance, but it is a very interactive place... 8-16 year old kids will love the various activities that they have!

We spent about 5.5 hours with kids 6, 9, and 16. I would say 6-7 yrs old is minimum age to enjoy. This is not a museum but 100% interactive with games like 3 pt, free throw, and buzzer beater challenges. Goals low enough for...More

I would say this attraction is designed for kids around 8-16 who love basketball. Younger than 8, they have a small hoops area to play but to really enjoy the experience and most of the activities, your kids need to be able to shoot on...More

Located next to Sprint Center. Plan on a couple hours... at least. A few restaurants located across street. Not your average basketball ‘museum’. Almost everything is interactive. Children 6-16 had a great time. Highlights included the wingspan & height calculator compared to NCAA players. Free...More
