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.

An great opportunity to learn a bit about the history of females in basketball, players and supporters of the game, and skill testing too (physical and intellectual). One of the highlights of our recent adventures through four states!

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.

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

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.
