This "Hall of Fame" museum holds the worlds largest collection of interesting Basketball memorabilia. The 6 floors are curated beautifully with a knowledgable staff that can answer all of your questions. Fun day! good for a rainy day activity as well

IF you love basketball and you are in the area not only can you visit the BHOF but you can visit the spot where the first game was played. The neighborhood is well kept. There are other interesting this around like the AIC campus.
