The most complete history of UNC basketball fortunes, written and visual. A most helpful volunteer initiated us before the tour. Thank you!

If you are a Tarheel fan, this is a must! Beautiful, modern building and plenty of Tarheel paraphenalia. Make time to visit and to see any available videos/movies. Check it out!

If you're a fan of Carolina Basketball... there is literally nothing like visiting the museum. The history, the memorabilia, the design and setup are great. Standing on a replica basketball court seeing where great shots too place is amazing.
