The NBA Exhibition, currently hosted at Queens Plaza in Brisbane, has become a hotspot for basketball enthusiasts. With over 20 themed sections, this immersive experience offers a unique journey through the rich history of the NBA, combining interactive elements, cutting-edge technology, and an impressive display of rare memorabilia. We decided to take a visit ourselves and see what the fuss was all about!
The exhibition seamlessly combines the NBA’s incredible history with modern interactive elements. A section we really enjoyed was the Measure Up area where you can see how you compare to the handprint, footprint and height of famous players. For those who love arcade games the Hoop Arcade will definitely be a highlight, where you can have fun testing out your aim and throwing skills. Local heroes are also celebrated in the display about Australians in the W/NBA which will interest many Aussie fans.
After marvelling at over 50 pieces of rare and signed memorabilia, learning interesting facts about your favourite players, and immersing yourself in the VR technology, you can peruse the great NBA gift shop. The gift shop has some amazing NBA merchandise and fun apparel for you to remember your time at the exhibition, or to buy as gifts for other basketball fans in your life.
