From the 10-ton, 30-foot-high basketball that sits on top of the building to the life-like animatronic figure of Senda Berenson, "the mother of women's basketball," this will not be your typical hall of fame visit.

It was on honor to be able to tour the Women's Basketball Hall of Fame today. The strides made in women's basketball throughout history is amazing. The uniforms were jaw dropping and the hair styles were "dip-pity do! Wonderful wealth of history.

A great attraction for any basketball fan. Because of the relatively recent development of the women's game, you get quite a full history of its development. There were some interesting interactive exhibits. I enjoyed the one where you are "in the locker room" with Geno...More

I wouldnt get too excited unless you are a big Womens Basketball fan. I will say it is very clean, neat and well put together. The exhibits are very informative and some even entertaining.

A couple of hours is plenty of time to see the exhibits and watch the film. We took pictures, watched the film, saw the exhibits and shot a few hoops in about an hour.

I am currently in Knoxville, and we come on business here at least bi-weekly. I am sure the curators would be interested and would be happy to take it by there. Maybe they can give you information about the photo at least.
