The College Basketball Experience’s interactive environment allows visitors to immerse themselves in various stages of a college basketball game, from a pre-game pep talk delivered in the museum’s elevator to audio-guided drills such as dribbling, passing, and shooting. Be prepared to sweat as the game continues, and take your chance at a slam dunk.
Tune out the sideline hecklers and dribble your way to victory before spending a reflective moment in the National Collegiate Basketball Hall of Fame, dedicated to unforgettable players and nostalgic moments.
Those who prefer their action through a television screen can step behind the ESPNU anchor desk and call out the play-by-play for some of college basketball’s greatest games. College Basketball Experience’s architect, New York City–based ESI Design, also created Cleveland’s Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
