The Illinois Basketball Hall of Fame Museum will be located in the David S. Palmer Arena in Danville. Interactive displays, videos, exhibits, and memorabilia will allow generations of basketball fans to re-live those special basketball moments. A high-lighted feature of the museum will honor the players, coaches, officials, teams, media and others selected as members of the Illinois Basketball Coaches Association’s (IBCA) Hall of Fame.
The Illinois Basketball Hall of Fame Museum is a private, not-for-profit corporation. The museum will operate solely on contributions by private and corporate benefactors and individuals.
