naismith memorial basketball hall of fame photoThe Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame is a fantastic destination for everyone from lifelong basketball fans to families with children who are just beginning to explore the world's most popular sport.

The 48,000 square-foot museum features three levels of entertaining and educational exhibits. The Hall of Fame is located in 'The Birthplace of Basketball', beautiful Springfield, Massachusetts.

Dedicated to the game's inventor, Dr. James Naismith, the Hall's original purpose was to provide a showcase honoring basketball's greatest players, coaches, teams and contributors.

The Basketball Hall of Fame has certainly stuck to that mission, but it has steadily evolved into much more. It's a marriage of history and modern technology, asking all who visit to feel rather than just read why the game of basketball is so special.

For more information about the Basketball Hall of Fame, or to make a group reservation contact Joe Hevey at 413-231-5511.
