Took my teenage son here while my daughter was touring UNC. We passed a solid 45 minutes checking out all of the memorabilia and stories - definitely a worthwhile stop on our trip

This is a great little museum, packed with Tar Heel memorabilia. A must see for any NC fan. Kind of hard to get to with all the construction in the area. I am assuming this will be all cleaned up before the 1st football game.

Perfect museum to memorialize the best basketball program. UNC basketball has played a large role in college basketball fro the coaches to the players. Memorabilia and videos make this a must see. Closed on Sundays.

I loved to see the history of Carolina Basketball. I remember these players, these coaches and they were a part of growing up in Eastern NC. It was a great visit for parents and kids.
