Amazing exhibition on the history of basketball, which originated in Springfield. Great building, with many restaurants attached. The ticket price was high, but definitely worth the experience

The Hall of Fame is a great retreat to study the history of Basketball, and to see the greatest player's of all time in every era. Both College and Pro's history is told in a great fashion and display of American sports..

This was my last (5th) Hall of Fame on this trip, it was nice, but a lot of College Basketball and the history of the game. A lot of things for the kids to do, multiple basketball courts to play games.

If you like basketball, this is a must. If not it is still fun. The history of the game says a lot about our country. There is much more than info on the NBA and major colleges. It is truly about the sport.

I actually am not too sure about that. I am sure they do some events there throughout the year though. I would check their website or Facebook Events or give them a call. :)
