Basketball Hall of Fame Springfield, Massachusetts
here’s a Hall of Fame for just about every sport in America, and my family has visited six athletic halls of fame to date. Halls of Fame are a great way to learn the history and rules of a sport, the evolution of the game, and the background and stats on famous players. There are always plenty of interactive exhibits to keep children entertained. The “do not touch, please stay quiet” rules of many museums are non existent at athletic halls of fame.
Recently, when my family was in Springfield, Massachusetts, we stopped at the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame. I’d plan on at least a half day at the Hall of Fame, but if you find yourself with extra time, take a quick five minute drive and visit the Dr. Seuss Museum (read my tips here) or the Springfield Armory (read my tips here).
