Basketball Hall of Fame reviews
As a lifelong basketball fan, I enjoyed this museum but agree with other reviewers that it's somewhat underwhelming and is heavily dominated by jerseys, shoes and signed basketballs. I saw nothing...

Our boys really enjoyed seeing all the sneakers worn by some of their favorite players. My wife and I learned a lot about many players we didn't know, and we all learned about how basketball was...

Didn’t realize that Springfield is where they invented basketball! So visiting here was a must for us. Took cool pictures of the beautiful building. They have a burger place and cold stone creamery...

If you love basketball, it's a must. Go ready to play and enjoy the center court and special dunk section. Hoop heights adjusted for the most vertically challenged visitors 😄 It was a great afternoon and well worth the drive.
An amazing experience that every basketball fan must visit. Exhibits we're amazing and the basketball court kept my son entertained for hours. Will take about 2 hours to go through the exhibits depending on how thorough you are. Gift shop is expensive and the only restaurant on site is subway but there's a pizzeria uno on the other end of the parking lot. An amazing experience
Very nice exterior design. Great history for any basketball fan. The ceiling of players’ faces is a nice touch. The basketball court at the end is fun to play on with the various types of fans that come through the hall. Really small though. You can fully read through all the exhibits in a couple hours at most. They should get an annex and have larger, detailed exhibits. The current building is very well designed for the “top of the line” stuff, but none of it goes much beyond surface level.
As a big Spurs fan, I was really excited to be coming here and in some ways I was glad I came and in other ways I was disappointed. It felt a lot less a hall of fame and more a museum to basketball. Which is fine, I got see a lot of cool stuff from the game, but I was hopeful that they would like maybe busts or something meaning full to every player other then what amounted to a name on a wall. So in the fame part, yeah it was a let down. Also the overall look of the place was kind of cheap. I was wondering if Google maps had somehow taken me to the wrong place. But it's still worth going even with all it's faults.
As a basketball fan this place was straight up awesome and staff are so friendly! They got game worn attire from the past ex. Wilt Chamberlain 100 pt. Game worn jersey. Piece of the hardwood Jordan hit the game winning shot from. They even got a basketball court inside you can shoot around in! Definitely a museum you need to check out
