They were so nice to our group and the kids got to try out a lot of different sports activities while they where there. It is a great place to go with sports loving kids.

This is definitely the place to go if you want to learn about any sport!! Learn about when each sport got started, how fast a tennis ball is served, diving, football, basketball, baseball, any type of sport. Makes learning of these sports a lot of fun!! Must check it out.

I love museums and have been to many in many different areas. The Smithsonian, Henry Ford, Air Force Museum in Dayton, Pro-Football HOF, Buffalo Bill Museum of the West and many historical, war, sports and car/racing museums and really enjoy them. I was very disappointed in this museum. For all the hype over the museum when it came here, I... More

We visited while in town for a conference and staying just around the corner. The downstairs showcases all the sports that are part of the NCAA. Kinda neat to be able to touch and feel some of the equipment from the lesser known sports. There is a circular room listing award winners from many years. Banners of current school champions...

The museum isn't very substantial, but it's pretty affordable and offers a good overview of the scope of NCAA athletics for those with any interest, some interactive kiosks about various sports, and a small gym to work on your jump shot!

The kids liked the quiz. It is very small and awkward but our family loved it as a short stay in a cold day.

Literally nothing here to speak of, exterior of building implies substance. Wrong! Little kids might be temporarily entertained by kicking a soccer ball, or dribbling a basketball. No "artifacts" to speak of, bare bones operation

I gave this place 4 out of 5 stars mostly because of the sports simulators on the second floor. Were it not for those, it might have gotten 2 stars. The main floor has a small exhibit for all the college sports. It gives information about the sport and showcases the uniform worn for that sport. One nice thing is... More

We do not know what we expected at an NCAA facility bit for the admission charge we expected more! The facility itself is impressive architecturally and is located in a beautiful park complex downtown. One can experience some of the exhibits interactively and learn about some of the great athletes. It almost seems like a self promotion of the Association... More
