The College Basketball Experience (CBE) is the nation's official hall of fame for men's collegiate basketball. A highly interactive sports facility, The CBE is the anti sports hall of fame. You may sweat here! Fun for the entire family.

Various exhibits and stations allow practice and rating of a number of basketball skills, in simulated lifelike situations. Fun for all ages. It seems as it could get crowded at peak times.

It is great fun but if you see a group of kids... run! We had fun, but there were so many daycare kids that it almost ruined it. I thought really hard about asking for my money back. We came from ATL, so I stuck...More

I enjoyed their college basketball Hall of Fame. It was neat to see Coach Jim Calhoun, Clyde Drexler, Chris Mullin and Pistol Pete's name on the wall. It is always interesting to see the Top 10 Cinderella teams listing. My son loved the second floor...More

The price was reasonable and it was nice, but the college football hall of fame in Atlanta, Ga puts this place to shame. It was nice they had a lot of basketball courts and interactive activities, but the hall of fame itself was not as...More

Thanks for your review of The CBE and Hall of Fame. To answer your question regarding women players/coaches...The Women's Basketball Hall of Fame is located in Knoxville, TN about 3-miles or so from University of Tennessee in downtown Knoxville. The CBE represents the men's game...More

This was probably our boys favorite stop. There is a lot to do here and my boys have played basketball since they were 5. They were definitely sweaty when they left the building. Lots of interactive things to do and great history especially if you...More

Being from Indiana, we had to try this place out. At $15 / adult and $12 / kid, it didn't necessarily feel like a deal, but it was fair. When you first enter, they have you take an elevator to the 2nd floor where they...More

Used to live in KC but only recently heard of this place. Had awesome fun with my two kids and recommending everyone to go here now. Really creative, fun to pretend sitting at the desk and pretending to be sports announcer.

It's not a hall of fame, it had no memorabilia, just some pics and quotes on the walls. Very overpriced. It doesn't paint a picture of the scope of college basketball in culture. It merely tries to make KC seem to be a basketball because...More

Thank you for your review. However, The CBE and National Collegiate Basketball Hall of Fame is and never was intended to be a "museum". We broke the mold on the previous model of what sports hall of fame's are about and created a unique brand...More
