This museum is a must see for any one interested in the history of baseball in this country. There are tons of artifacts, videos, and stories on the many great players from this league. If you are a baseball fan and don't know about the Negro Leagues then this a MUST see attraction.

Visited the museum with my sons who were visiting from California. We loved the history of the Negro Leagues and the pictures and artifacts on display were pretty educational. We finished it with a tour of the jazz venue and museum right next door. Well worth the time.

This is a very interesting little museum. I am a baseball fan but I don't think that you need to be a fan to enjoy the history portrayed there. When we called they told us it would take 45 minutes to an hour to see it all but we spent a lot of time looking at the 25th anniversary special... More

Jackie Robinson was brought to the major leagues in 1947. I was born 2 years later and had the good fortune to see Satchel Paige pitch in an exhibition some 10years later. This wonderful museum chronicles both and the many more players from the Negro Baseball Leagues. This is to the baseball enthusiast hallowed ground. The displays are wonderful and... More

It's not a big place but has lots of history and information you won't ever get from any history book. I really enjoyed my visit, I learned so much.

Museum was informative but not extensive. Worth a visit but don't expect to stay long. Plan to visit the Jazz Museum next door while you're in the area.

Tons of info and artifacts about a little-known piece of US history. I loved not just info about the game, but the fact that it was always put into the context of the times.
