Had a great time. The grandson loved the many activities, while I liked the history component. Might like to go back again with just my son, so I could watch/read everything.

We stayed at the MGM and walked to the Hall of Fame. You start on the 3rd floor and make your way down to the basketball court where you are allowed to shoot around. The interactive displays are fun, but some are outdated.

This place is a lot bigger than what it seems from the outside. Amazing history of the game and the players. It was great to see the artifacts up close and the basketball court is very cool!
