What a fun place to visit! Several interactive exhibits including a video about how the original rules got back to KU from the 30 for 30 episode. Lots to look at and read. Lots of photo opportunities and best of all it was FREE!

This place is KU heaven of the past and present of KU's many, many achievements. Next door in the DeBruce Facility is the original Rules of Basketball... It's so mind blowing to see!!

As a lifelong Jayhawk fan, seeing this place for the first time was unforgettable. Immersing myself in the rich history of KU athletics, I was awe-struck. It's not something that you can adequately convey with mere words, it's a feeling, it's an experience beyond description....More

Went to a game and walked thru the hall of athletics prior to the game. The new addition housing the "Rules of Basketball" is very nice, the ramps were really nice.

This is a great place to wonder around after a big win. A must see for any basketball game. Not only does it represent KUs tradition and legacy, but there is so much about the sport of basetball itself.

This is a free exhibit. I checked the hours and we attempted to go prior to a KU home game. The problem with that is that it's closed before home games and doesn't open until the doors open about an hour or two prior to...More

If you're going to a Kansas men's/women's basketball game, you must wander through the Hall of Athletics. The glories of past KU athletes and titles and trophies are on display from over 100 years. There are hands on exhibits for the younger and younger-minded sets...More

The rules are located in the DeBruce Center which is just to the north of Allen Field House. While it is possible to enter the exhibit from the second level of Allen, during non-game days that entrance might not be open but... More
