Great collection of baseball history. Loved the timeline and how it related to other events during that time.

The Negro Leagues existed in segregated parallel with the (at that time) all white/Hispanic major leagues in baseball. Jackie Robinson started in the Negro Leagues as did many other baseball legends. This museum is dedicated to memorializing the great teams and players of that era. It's fascinating. The highlight is the "field" with life-sized bronze statues of the greats. What a wonderful experience. It shares a building with the Museum of American Jazz, another must-see. And with admission to both a total of $10,

My wife and I went to Negro Leagues Baseball Museum because she's a fan--I wasn't. But even for a non-fan it was an interesting look at America during segregation through the window of baseball. I was enthralled. If it was my decision I would make this a AAA Gem attraction.

All I can say it was one of the most memorable experiences I've had in years. I got to see three hall of famers, Hank Aaron, Frank Robinson and Dave Winfield. I also saw Chalie Pride whom I didn't know played in the Negroe League. Plus one of the Negore League's greatest Art Pennington.
