Stretch your legs, your arms, and your mind in the Hall of Fame best suited to Kansas City! KC is the heart of men's college basketball, and houses the National Collegiate Basketball Hall of Fame. With all you ever wanted to learn about the history of the sport's contributors, coaches and players, learning is only a fraction of what you'll do at The CBE, because you're gonna sweat. The interactive museum is perfect for guests ages 3 to 99 and is open daily in March and during the summer; Wednesday through Sunday year round.

A Blast!

Tuck S. - Topeka, KS

I love the College Basketball Experience and Hall of Fame. It's decently priced and so much fun. You can shoot free throws with the crowd behind you trying to distract you. You can see how many 3's you can make in 40 seconds. You can call the game as an announcer on ESPNU. And not to mention the history of college basketball is laid out in front of you. It's just an amazing place to visit in downtown KC.

Get your game on

Chris B. - Excelsior Springs, MO

We visited on July 1, 2009 after purchasing our tickets and being told a little about the facility we entered. Upon entering, we were greeted to many young children running all over the place. We attempted to go through and try to use the many interactive exhibits and displays. But were repeatedly waiting on unsupervised young children that either refused to leave an exhibit, take turns or would interrupt our use. What little staff we saw was standing in groups talking with each other not maintaining any type of order or seeing that the rules clearly stated at each exhibit were being followed. It was clear that the children were with a group of some kind and all of the adults were playing basketball at the center court. When we did finally get to use a few of the exhibits many were broken or not properly working. I have 3 young boys ranging in age from 10-15 who were looking forward to this trip but now do not want to ever return. After being treated so rudely and having no help from staff to maintain some type of civil atmosphere, we were left with a bad taste in our mouth. We ended up leaving without finishing because of this. This facility clearly is not geared toward families or well maintained. I hope that in future they can correct these problems, I would hate for visitors to Kansas City to leave with the same feelings I have.

Kansas City is Home

Bradley Y. - Overland Park, KS

We moved here 3 years ago with very little expectations of Kansas. Since that time we have grown to love Kansas City as our home. We have 3 children and there is an endless supply of family fun.

We have enjoyed the zoo, Deanna Rose Farmstead, theater in the park, the Crown Center, Union Station, Science City, The Great Wolf Lodge, The Legends, the Speedway, the college basketball hall of fame, the symphony, the KC Brigade, and so much more.

We are so happy to have found the wonderfulness of Kansas City and we are always spreading that news to friends and family. Thank you Kansas City!
