The College Basketball Experience (CBE) is the nation's official hall of fame for men's collegiate basketball. A highly interactive sports facility, The CBE is the anti sports hall of fame. You may sweat here! Fun for the entire family.

Being from Indiana, we had to try this place out. At $15 / adult and $12 / kid, it didn't necessarily feel like a deal, but it was fair. When you first enter, they have you take an elevator to the 2nd floor where they...More

Used to live in KC but only recently heard of this place. Had awesome fun with my two kids and recommending everyone to go here now. Really creative, fun to pretend sitting at the desk and pretending to be sports announcer.

It's not a hall of fame, it had no memorabilia, just some pics and quotes on the walls. Very overpriced. It doesn't paint a picture of the scope of college basketball in culture. It merely tries to make KC seem to be a basketball because...More

Thank you for your review. However, The CBE and National Collegiate Basketball Hall of Fame is and never was intended to be a "museum". We broke the mold on the previous model of what sports hall of fame's are about and created a unique brand...More

I'm not sure what we were expecting, but this was a HUGE let down. Spent $15 a person to get in, only to be done with the whole thing in 30 minutes. There was hardly any memorabilia and some of the interactive stuff was broken....More

Thank you for your review. We appreciate the feedback of our valued customers and guests. However...we would have to disagree with your assessment of The CBE. Per our various online review rankings and nearly a million customers/visitors to date, we continue to raise the bar...More

We have gone there for team dinner after business conference. Nice place to hangout with friends or family. Lots of activities for all ages. Over all great place.

In my opinion there is simply not enough on display to keep your attention. There are interactive exhibits but they do not keep your attention for long.

There are nearly one million visitors who would disagree with this statement. Thanks for coming and we sincerely invite you back to explore the entirety of The CBE where visitors spend anywhere from 2-8 hours in this daily celebration of collegiate basketball!

If there was a rating between average and poor that is wear I would rate the CBE. The visit started off bad and did not get much better. The person selling tickets had an attitude problem. Wrong job for someone with an attitude problem. There...More

As a Hugh NCAA fan if college B-Ball I could not lease KC without visiting. Fantastic time seeing all the exhibits especially as the tourney was in town the same week. If you're a fan....go visit this site!

Great games topped off by University of Oregon beating Kansas University (an hour away in Kansas). Beautiful sport setting although leaving is a bit of a challenge because of the crowds and no real system to depart.
