Basket Ball: James Naismith’s Original Rules at Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art (Kansas City)

James Naismith thumbtacked the freshly typed 13 rules for his new game, Basket Ball, to a gymnasium bulletin board in December 1891. Now nearly 120 years later, the public will have its first chance to see the landmark document that launched a cultural legacy in a display at The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art. James Naismith’s Original Rules of Basket Ball opens to the public Saturday, March 5, in Kirkwood Hall at the Museum.
