From the 10-ton, 30-foot-high basketball that sits on top of the building to the life-like animatronic figure of Senda Berenson, "the mother of women's basketball," this will not be your typical hall of fame visit.

We actually had fun at this place. The Women's Basketball Hall of Fame was a very cool place to visit and to learn some things about women's basketball we had an audio tour which is a self-guided walk through and we had a lot of fun.

Comprehensive and dedicated center of information for those interested in the women who have made a notable contribution to their area of basketball. Useful gift shop for buying presents. Ask the person on duty where the remaindered, clearance and discounted items are.

I use to work for the city of Knoxville & was on duty here during the building of the Hall of Fame, a great place to learn about the great women of the sport.

The Women's Basketball Hall of Fame is a wonderful museum that showcases the progresssion and the history of women in basketball. The tour is self guided and starts with a short film. The museum was educational as well as inspirational. The displays include the uniforms from the early days. I loved the interactive area with the basketball goals. Overall, I... More

Especially for women sports enthusiasts, this is a must do. I will say it was enlightening and enjoyable for a short visit and definitely worth a drop in when you have the time. Also, it was inspirational and well planned for optimizing your tour. I will highly recommend this attraction to friends I know (through business) that are participants in... More

A great place for women's basketball fans and sports fans in general. There is a short movie to kick off your self-guided tour that shows the history of the women's game... however, during our showing, the picture went dead during the last 10-15 minutes. Most of the people in the theater were satisfied to just leave and start looking around,... More

Start with a short history film on women's basketball then self guided tour. Very interesting. I really enjoyed reading about each of the inductees. Did. To partake in the interactive activities on the first floor, but most would enjoy that also. $5.50 Senior admission.

I had my daughter's 14th birthday party here years ago. I decided to visit again. This place was amazing. They have kept their items up to date and their historical presentations are accurate and interesting. Great place for the entire family to visit. Plenty of parking. Easy access. Convenient hours; low admission rates.
