A very nicely done museum regarding a piece of history I knew very little about. I'm not a huge baseball fan, but this still held my interest and I learned a lot. There is a great movie as well the talks about the history of Negro baseball. No cameras allowed is my only complaint.

Wonderful visit, the Baseball History is enlightening. To learn that the Negro League was first to have night game, amazing. I really like this Museum and would love to return with grandkids.

I am sure that if one wanted to learn more about the Negro Leagues, it's association with Kansas City, and the culture and history of this aspect of American life, it would be beneficial. I thought it was going to offer that and so much more, but was really quite disappointed. It is not a large place, with a lot... More

It was OK, just average. Took about an hour or so to see everything. The introductory film was good. $10 admission is a little steep for a museum of this size.

I took a friend who had lived in KC for a few years and was moving back to Michigan. We had a great time exploring Negro Leagues Baseball history. One of the more interesting facts was that there was actually a barnstorming team in the city in Michigan that she was going to move to. We thoroughly enjoyed our experience... More

I coordinated a trip to the museum for a group of senior citizens from our church. The museum tells the history of the Negro Leagues and the great players and owners via video, pictures, and artifacts from the League. Both men and women enjoyed going through the museum. It is also good way of teaching about segregation for generations who... More

This museum is very good. From the lifelike statues of famous players in their positions around the baseball diamonds to the different teams, uniforms, and equipment that they used back in the day this museum is definitely worth a visit.

Outstanding, respectful tribute to the Negro Leagues and the players and personalities that made them so great. It is a great baseball museum and a fitting tribute to the men who helped build the game.
