A must see for any serious baseball fan. Amazing collections of memorabilia. Wonderful information about the early days of Negro League, including the Negro Women's League. A fine tribute to the athletes and what they endured in a difficult period of our country's history.

I was very pleased to see how they did a tribute to Negro players in this Museum. We were there about an hour, and we could have probably stayed longer. A great place for any baseball fan it is a must do.

I'm not really a baseball fan; however, we were in the area and saw the museum and took some time to visit. It was very interesting and I enjoyed our visit and the historical perspective.

We loved the museum and even took KCK natives who had never visited. A few things need to be repaired but overall it was great.

It would be a good choice, especially if you had only a few hours. And the original Arthur Bryant’s BBQ is just a few blocks away. Combine those two for a great taste of KC history.
