“History and baseball combined”
Reviewed January 12, 2012

Loved this museum! Went on a Tuesday afternoon, only a couple other people there. It's not a large museum by any means, and we were there for just over an hour. I could not believe how much info they packed in the place. Only complaint is they don't allow pictures. The museum shop was cool as well.

“Great piece of Americana”
Reviewed January 7, 2012

This museum is a national treasure. Our very own Buck O'Neil did so much to contribute to the success of the museum. The history of these great players is preserved thanks to this great man's work. Awesome!

Takes you back to the good old baseball days in Kansas City. Learn facts you have never known and displays are fantastic.

“If you are a sports fan...you should not miss it.”
Reviewed December 18, 2011

While the Major Leagues were keeping black ballplayers from playing, the Negro Leagues were showcasing their talents. They were great, of course. The fashions, the pictures of the players and the trips down memory lane are wonderful.

“If its for baseball and history you want to see”
Reviewed December 15, 2011

The museum gives a good presentation of the Negro League history even if it is short on artifacts. Well worth seeing if you are into baseball. It is in the same building as the Jazz Museum and there is a fee for both but much discounted if bought together.
