Women’s Basketball Hall of Fame

While searching Groupon for things to do (I LOVE those Tiffany Haddish commercials!) I came across tickets to the Women’s Basketball Hall of Fame in Knoxville, TN. I had no idea there was a basketball Hall of Fame. I bought tickets hoping that we’d be able to stop by on the drive from Pigeon Forge, TN to Brownsville, TN. As luck would have it, the museum is right off of the freeway we need to take.

You can see the huge basketball that sits atop the museum as soon as you round the bend from the exit on the freeway. The parking lot is a little small but there weren’t many cars on the day and time we went. The door was a little hard to find but find it we did. We redeemed our Groupon tickets in the gift shop with a helpful young man that gave us the layout of the museum and encouraged us to start by watching the short film.

I knew the kids wouldn’t sit for a video so we headed on to learn about how women’s basketball got its start. The kids blew past all the reading but I learned a little about the history of the game. By the time I was done reading, I could hear the family enjoying the lower level courts.

The whole bottom floor in an interactive wonderland! There are three small basketball courts, four wooden skill helpers, a dribbling drill with different options, and 4 cutouts for some photo fun. The kids loved it so much, they cried when we left.

If we’re in Knoxville again, we’ll definitely return.
