    If you enjoy tennis, this is a must do!
    Beautiful facilities with a great staff. My daughter and I played on the grass courts and absolutely loved it. Before hitting the “lawn” we walked the HOF and learned a lot about the history of tennis. We spent an hour in the HOF and if we had allowed ourselves more time, would have spent another 45 mins. If you enjoy tennis, the HOF is a must do. And if you play tennis, take advantage of the grass courts!!

    Interesting place to kill a few hours.
    Interesting way to kill a few hours while in Newport. This place is a lot bigger than it looks from the outside. I am not a tennis fan but I did enjoy walking around the beautiful grounds, learning about this property and seeing beautifully maintained grass courts. There is a museum, restaurant and numerous tennis courts. If you’re into tennis, I would check this place out!

    Even a non tennis fan will enjoy!
    I have been watching tennis since the 80s and i thoroughly enjoyed the museum. Loved the history and loved seeing memorabilia from my favorite players. The price was reasonable and it took about 90 mins to go through the inside and another 15- 30 mins outside. But the best review i can write is my friend never followed tennis and she enjoyed it as well. Worth the time especially on a rainy day.

Plan on 1.5hrs unless you want to read a majority of the player history exhibits. The exhibits and grounds are historically interesting and if you’re a tennis player or fan you should find it a great place to visit.

If you love tennis you should stop here. Interesting artifacts and history. A bit overpriced for the size of the museum but its fun to see what they have.

Even if you don’t particularly like Tennis it’s still worth a visit. The grounds are beautiful (free to walk around), a old style country club atmosphere with tennis courts and even a Real Tennis court. It’s an active club so there are games going on.

The museum chronicles the history of tennis and it’s very well done with traditional exhibits and more modern VR interactive stuff. There’s a fee to enter but from memory it’s reasonable.

Easy to get to, it’s on the free shuttle bus service to the mansions and don’t miss Annie’s Diner which is in the same block.

Terrific small museum. Gorgeous facility. Well worth the visit. Museum is a little PC with their emphasis on women’s rights and race relations. I mean really? Like either of those are an issue for what - the last 40 years? But if you ignore that it is a sensational facility. You can even rent a grass court to play or take lessons.
Fascinating “Real tennis” court.
Pro shop and very overpriced gift shop ($35 T shirt??).
A little hard to find. Entrance is in a group of beautiful old storefronts. Park across the street in the shopping plaza and buy something in a store to get your ticket validated.

Well-displayed exhibits throughout museum, not only info. on amazing champions, but other interesting historical facts. We enjoyed the various
showcasing of ever-changing tennis outfits throughout the years!
Beautiful sunny day allowed us an outdoor lunch courtside (no profs but fun to catch some tennis action). Beautiful grounds! ( see photos) 🎾
