During the summer the HoF puts on events with legends of the game (Ray Allen, Charlie Scott, Tim Hardaway, Jason Kidd all in one week!) making appearances and signing autographs - all included for the price of admission. What a deal!

Lots of great basketball history here. There are informative artifacts and displays and also hands on things you can try like dunking the ball or testing your jump skills. A must see for basketball fans.
