Hoops Fans Score with Interactive NBA Exhibition at Queens Plaza

An interactive NBA Exhibition is set to captivate hoops enthusiasts when it dribbles into Brisbane next month.

The NBA Exhibition makes its Australian debut at Queens Plaza from 9 November. Organised by Istanbul-based creative agency Muse, the immersive showcase celebrates all things basketball in 20 themed sections across two levels and a thousand square metres.

The NBA Exhibition

Visitors can test their own skills by shooting hoops, seeing how high they can jump and testing their reflexes. Virtual reality goggles allow you to watch NBA highlights, while augmented reality technology allows fans to take photos with digitally rendered versions of their favourite players.

The exhibition features a treasure trove of autographed jerseys, balls and sneakers from legends such as Michael Jordan, Kobe Bryant and Shaquille O’Neal. Historic artefacts include an original leather basketball from the 1940s and a massive size 22 shoe owned by Shaq.
