Chapel Hill, NC - ­ The University of North Carolina is opening the brand new Carolina Basketball Museum for fans attending the North Carolina High School Athletic Association state basketball championship games on Saturday being held at Chapel Hill.

There is no charge to tour the museum, which is located on the first floor of the Ernie Williams Athletics Center adjacent to the Smith Center and Koury Natatorium.

The museum features artifacts, videos, photos, statistical and historical panels that highlight the history of the Carolina Basketball program. The museum experience begins with a six-minute theater presentation and includes video tributes to Dean Smith, Roy Williams, Phil Ford, Michael Jordan and the history of UNC Basketball.

It also includes interactive presentations highlighting Carolina's 16 Final Four appearances and 16 Atlantic Coast Conference Tournament championships, and many of the greatest games and most exciting finishes in Tar Heel history.

The museum will be open from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday during the NCHSAA championships. There are no passes out of the Smith Center after fans purchase their tickets, so those attending one of the four title games may visit the museum before or after they watch their team play during the designated hours.
