I'm not a baseball fan, but still wanted to visit the museum. I was impressed. Not only by the baseball history, but the overall history presented about African Americans in Kansas. Definitely a must see in Kansas.

This museum is wonderfully interactive and full of great exhibits on the history of the Negro Leagues. A must-see for any true baseball fan. Spend the extra couple dollars for the combo ticket and take in the jazz museum next door as well :)
