I knew this was going to be great when I was greeted as soon as I walked in. The details of the history were simply amazing. Loved the individual videos of different players and achievements.

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.

Located close to the Dean Dome. Great way to spend an hour or so on game day! Call or go online to check hours before traveling.
