My wife and I visited on a Monday afternoon mid-January and thoroughly enjoyed. Of a size that was not overwhelming and offered human interest stories of many players outside of their tennis lives. Great history for those new or unfamiliar with the game.

This is highly recommended for any tennis fan. There was a great deal of time spent on the history of the game, which could have been curtailed somewhat. However, the museum and it's interactive sections were quite fun. My personal favorite was the opportunity to...More

As a follower of tennis I enjoyed the exhibit. I do wish less of the exhibit was dedicated to the history of the sport and more space was given to highlight some of the tennis players that are in the hall of fame.

Interesting site to visit considering the history of the place, the tennis talent that it honors and the facility itself. The buildings and grounds are a throwback to another era, and its nice that the architecture and appointments are preserved here. The place honors the...More

The museum has great programs during the holidays (fun for kids, too). And the tennis lessons are excellent. Both my sons have taken lessons there, my oldest for over a decade.
