Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

The Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame will be recognized throughout the world as the premier institution entrusted with recording and disseminating the history of the game of basketball and recognizing and honoring the achievements of its greatest players, coaches, and contributors.

The Hall of Fame will provide an entertaining and enriching experience and will be known for educational and outreach programs that celebrate and promote the positive core values demonstrated by basketball's foremost heroes.

The Hall of Fame will achieve this vision by:

Operating the world's finest sports museums where the game was invented, in Springfield, Massachusetts, and where the history of the game comes alive.

Developing a widely accessible educational program that addresses the positive societal impact of the game and provides inspiration to young people globally.

Engaging in outreach throughout the United States and beyond via travelling exhibits and special events.

Assuring worldwide access to the resources of the HOF through the Internet.

Recognizing basketball excellence through a Hall of Fame selection process that will be based upon the highest level of integrity.

Fostering respectful and reverential treatment of all elected Hall of Famers.

Celebrating the contemporary game and its evolving impact on basketball's future.

Over the past fourteen years, we have transformed into a truly appropriate representation of a great game of basketball through an aggressive platform of event outreach and community engagement, all while maintaining a vibrant museum experience. We continue to strive to reach a global audience by improving our social media, online offerings, and international events.
