In honor of LeBron James’ life and accomplishments, Home Court, an immersive multimedia museum, opened in his hometown of Akron, Ohio, on November 25.

“My dream was always to put Akron on the map, so to have a place in my hometown that allows me to share my journey with my fans from all over the world means a lot to me,” the Los Angeles Lakers star, 38, said in a press release. “I’ve been known to hang on to a lot of things over the years, and I always knew there would be a time and place to bring them out.”

Visitors can embark on a self-guided tour of the future Hall of Famer’s life at the museum, beginning with recreations of his Spring Hill Apartment #602 and the high school gym at St. Vincent-St. Mary’s, where he played. Relics from his 21 NBA seasons, including stops in Cleveland, Miami, and Los Angeles, as well as the white suit he wore when chosen first overall in the 2003 NBA Draft, are on display at the museum.

LeBron’s jersey number and general admission tickets cost $23. All proceeds from the event will support The LeBron James Family Foundation’s House Three Thirty job training program. Akron, of course, holds a special place in the basketball legend’s life.
