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.
