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 not much for basketball, but I had a very good time and learned so much while I was here. The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. I had a good time, it amazes me that the uniforms they used to wear.

I wasn't sure what to expect other than seeing some basketball history but it was so entertaining. We had a small group and it was really informational and we enjoyed it. Love the way it was setup and look forward to going back again!

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.
