Military active/retired get in free. Dependants have discounted tickets. Huge inside. There were activities to do for teens. Not sure if toddlers would enjoy the atmosphere---or rather, not conducive environment for toddlers (unless they are gifted that young to understand basketball)

Its well done with 3 levels of memorabilia. It could be a little bigger but its worth at least 1 to 2 hours. They have a court you can shoot around and is great for kids.

They have done a great job with this Hall. It’s round with two floors and a big basketball court in the center where everyone can shoot hoops. A Jumbotron hangs over the court, so you get the real deal feel. Kids were having a ball....More

With two teenage boys this was a great stop. The central court is a great way to close out the look around. And being from Australia seeing both Lindsay Gaze and Michelle Timms in there was special.

We visited on a Sunday afternoon and were disappointed in the Hall of Fame. Three floors of memorabilia is really only two with a BIG portion dedicated to sportscaster and coaches. As our 8 year old said, this isn't as good as Cooperstown. We agreed....More
