From the 10-ton, 30-foot-high basketball that sits on top of the building to the life-like animatronic figure of Senda Berenson, "the mother of women's basketball," this will not be your typical hall of fame visit.

I am glad I came to visit because I learned about the history of women's basketball. I really did NOT know that women had been playing for that long. The museum traces the history of the sport since Sandra Berman first organized a team. The...More

I enjoyed the movie about the history and background of women's basketball which is the first thing you will see before you walk through the various sections of the hall of fame. Some examples of what you will see: history of rules,uniforms, players,teams,equipment,etc.

Nice place to shoot some hoops in air conditioning! Don't miss the opening film! It's very inspiring!

Small "museum" but lots of interesting info. Historical info, displays, artifacts, very cool. Starts with a short movie that summarizes it all. Includes an area where you can play basketball and do activities. Lots of history and pride.

We tried to go here with a groupon deal that they refused to honor. I called and the very rude "President" tried to sell me the same tickets for $50 rather than the $15 price advertised that mysteriously sold out. She couldn't believe that I...More

The Groupon offer that you are referring to had expired. The two people that you talked to that day were not rude but just explained the coupon policy. Your statement of two old hateful women is disrespectful. Unfortunately, you wrote this review due to the...More

It's worth going just to see the building - part of which looks like a basketball about to drop into a net. Wow! That's actually why we went - a friend told us about the architecture and we wanted to see it. Apparently, however, a...More

I enjoyed visiting the museum on Wednesday, May 10, 2017. Fans of women's basketball will love it. Persons who especially enjoy the lower floor's opportunity to test and practice their basketball skills may rate this attraction at five stars. But persons who aren't interested in...More

This is very disappointing. Do not recommend. The displays are second class. The location is very accessible as the Marriott is next door. The time spent was about one hour, only my sister enjoyed it as she is a ladies lady.

Where better could the Women's Basketball Hall of Fame be located than in the city where the greatest college basketball Coach (Pat Summit) set so many records and won seven (7) National Championlships.

This was interesting! Didn't take very long to go through but it was full of information. We enjoyed the basketball area downstairs. The virtual basketball on the "original" court wasn't working and we were disappointed in that but we had a great time. Prices are...More

A couple of hours is plenty of time to see the exhibits and watch the film. We took pictures, watched the film, saw the exhibits and shot a few hoops in about an hour.

I am currently in Knoxville, and we come on business here at least bi-weekly. I am sure the curators would be interested and would be happy to take it by there. Maybe they can give you information about the photo at least.
