“Wish I would have had more time”
Reviewed July 21, 2012

The museum was jam-packed with information & history. Too much information to cram into one day. It is a very small area and only took me about 4 hours to get through everything. Felt like I could go through 4 or 5 more times at least and get a large amount of history.

“Amazing, wonderful. Don't miss this museum.”
Reviewed July 12, 2012

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,

“Interesting Even to a Non-Fan”
Reviewed July 11, 2012

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.
