All baseball fan should take the time to visit the NLBM!
The museum is small but it is packed with information. Everything you would expect to see is there - uniforms, first person historical accounts, photos, etc. The best feature is the indoor baseball field with life-sized Negro League stars stationed at their respective positions. Visitors are welcome to walk out onto this "field" - a truly inspiring experience.
This is a place that asks us to reflect upon our past as a Nation and as a society. It asks us to never forget the barriers and prejudices that existed. It asks us to never forget about those men who never had the opportunity to button-up a "major league" jersey.
A few tips: The museum is rather small so plan to visit some other KC attractions as well! The NLBM is conveniently located in the same building as the Jazz museum.
As avid baseball fans, we took the opportunity to catch a KC Royals game as well. During our visit to the NLBM we saw a few players from the visiting team as well!
