Needed to burn sometime over a weekend on a business trip. Happened to stop by this unique Gem. The Negro Leagues museum was packed full of historical photos, exhibits, and video that told a story of some unsung heroes of Civil Rights and Sports. The museum is well maintained. I really enjoyed the timeline.
It was a most interesting visit and most enjoyable! Highly recommend this to all baseball fans. This is part of baseball history and needs fans attention!
I had literally no knowledge about the Negro Leagues. Even though I care little about sports, the museum was fascinating and well worth the trip
What a fantastic treasure! This museum has so much to offer! I was amazed by how large it was once inside. There was a very large collection of memorabilia and the way everything is displayed is simply beautiful! This is a MUST see for everyone-not just baseball fans! A very important part of US history!!
This place is a gem, everyone should know this history. The ticket agent was not customer service oriented, but once inside you forget the rudeness and get absorbed into the history.
You don't need to spend long in this museum - my friend and I found it quite interesting. It is in the same building as the Jazz Museum so buy one ticket and visit both!
We were looking for something to visit at the last minute and a friend recommended the NLBM. What a pleasant surprise. The displays are all well laid out and easy to follow. Nice short introductory movie to put things in perspective. Parking free out front and active duty military get free admission.
My husband is a baseball and history fanatic - so this was a great visit. The displays are life-like and educational, the introductory film provided good context and the chronological order of the museum made it an easy way to learn and understand.
The Negro Leagues Baseball Museum is a perfect place to visit and learn and enjoy for anyone especially baseball fans. The amount of memorabilia is astounding. I learned a lot and loved the experience.
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.
