Hoosiers, as Indiana natives are called, are serious about basketball. Very serious, as you’ll see at the NCAA Hall of Champions Museum, a four-block stroll from the Conrad Indianapolis. Basketball fanatics can play out their hoop dreams on the museum’s indoor court marked with the moves of famous game-clinching shots in college basketball history. Recreate Christian Laettner’s miracle shot that lifted Duke over Kentucky in the 1992 NCAA tournament or dribble to make Keith Smart’s fade-away buzzer-beater to win Indiana University’s 1987 championship game. Balls are provided, but bring your own jump shot.
Head west on Washington Street for three blocks. Cross West Street to enter White River State Park, follow the sidewalk as it passes by the Indiana State Museum. Cross a pedestrian bridge to the building with the flags on the roofline.
NCAA HALL OF CHAMPIONS MUSEUM: 700 W. Washington St.; 317-916-4255; ncaahallofchampions.org; $3 kids, $5 adults
