About the Hall

Within the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame there are over four hundred and fifty esteemed inductees, encapsulating the rich legacy of the sport. Spanning more than 40,000 square feet, this hallowed space is dedicated to preserving and showcasing the history of basketball.

What sets us apart from others is our inclusive celebration of all facets of the game and its diverse community. We honor individuals from all backgrounds - men, women, both professional and amateur, and those who have contributed to the game domestically and internationally.

Nestled along the banks of the Connecticut River, the Museum stands as a tribute to the game Dr. Naismith crafted over a century ago. With its unique design, the Hall of Fame emerges as one of the globe's most remarkable monuments. The gleaming silver sphere adorns the Springfield skyline, igniting the enthusiasm of basketball enthusiasts worldwide. Within its walls, visitors are treated to an extensive array of treasures, from thousands of artifacts and beloved memorabilia to captivating films, images, and interactive displays. And don't miss the unforgettable experience of stepping onto the "Jerry Colangelo Court of Dreams."
