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.

Greater appreciation for the game now that we've learned a lot about women's basketball. Lots to look at, but be ready to read. The basketball court for guest to play on was a lot of fun too.

This place was very interesting to learn about the early stages of women's basketball. The tour is self guided, which is a nice feature. Everyone had a good time.

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.

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...More

How long does it usually take to go through the Hall of Fame? We have a couple of hours on a Friday afternoon while we're in Knoxville, but I want to make sure that's enough time for what it has to offer. Thanks!

A couple of hours is plenty of time to see the exhibits and watch the film. We took pictures, watched the film, saw the exhibits and shot a few hoops in about an hour.
My boyfriend and I purchased a picture from an estate sale for the frame. When we took it apart we an old photo young women posing with a basketball and hoop. Pic may date back to early part of 20th century. I can send a photo if you may have an interest in display in the museum. Please let me know either way. Thx

I am currently in Knoxville, and we come on business here at least bi-weekly. I am sure the curators would be interested and would be happy to take it by there. Maybe they can give you information about the photo at least.
