Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame: What better way to illustrate social distancing recommendations than by showing the wingspan of WNBA and NBA players?

The Hall is also providing a stylus to each guest enabling them to get the full effect of the newly reimagined attraction without touching the touchscreens with their hands.
