  • This Hall of Fame is near the University of Tennessee. It honors the many women who have played basketball at the College and Professional level. There are great displays and even a court for you...  more »
  • Our Daughters and Dads Day began at the Women's Basketball Hall of Fame, with sign-in and lunch. We then took a tour of the facility, which was very interesting. Very educational and entertaining.  more »

  • I am a mother of female basketball players and i was so amazed at the idea of being able to give my daughtsrs something to dream about and give them hope at the same time!!! I want them to know the strong women before them that paved the way for them and that they also can be great!!!! Just something to raise the standards of young black women who live in a small town!!! #Blessed1
  • We visited this museum with my daughter's basketball team and thoroughly enjoyed it. A short, informative video on the history of women's basketball with cool highlight videos, plenty of memorabilia, and an obstacle course that any player will love. Highly recommended for all ages.
