Stopped by when visiting the area. Well done museum covering the history of UNC basketball. Outstanding exhibits from Dean Smith to Michael Jordan and a great display of national championship trophies. A "must see" stop for the college basketball fan!

The most complete history of UNC basketball fortunes, written and visual. A most helpful volunteer initiated us before the tour. Thank you!

Excellent memorabilia if you're a fan of MJ! I personally liked Coach Smith's letter to MJ pointing out all the basketball skills improvement MJ need to work out during the summer.

I knew this was going to be great when I was greeted as soon as I walked in. The details of the history were simply amazing. Loved the individual videos of different players and achievements.

If you are a Tarheel fan, this is a must! Beautiful, modern building and plenty of Tarheel paraphenalia. Make time to visit and to see any available videos/movies. Check it out!

If you're a fan of Carolina Basketball... there is literally nothing like visiting the museum. The history, the memorabilia, the design and setup are great. Standing on a replica basketball court seeing where great shots too place is amazing.
