not in the glamorous part of town but a lot of history inside the museum. learned a lot on my trip, but its more of a reading dialogue as you walk around versus cooperstown which is a lot of "awe" of historic pieces on display. still would recommend if you have 2 hours to walk through for a baseball fan.
We happened upon this museum strolling around in downtown Kansas City and was pleasantly surprised to learn so much about baseball and the Negro Leagues. The gift shop was great and reasonably priced. I am personally not a baseball fanatic but the information given at this museum was really appreciated. And it's located inside the Jazz museum so you could... 更多
For fans of baseball, this is a must see. My wife and I spent roughly two hours perusing this small, but highly informational museum. You'll learn about heroes past (Paige, Robinson, etc.) and maybe even find some new ones worth googling later! Very cool spot, worth a visit!
I'm not a baseball buff but this museum is a MUST SEE to all who come to Kansas City. The artifacts, layout and souvenir shop were interesting and a learning experience. WOW
I was not aware that this type of institution - national treasure - was in Kansas City. This is a piece of sports history that every visitor to Kansas City should take the time to visit.
We spent a couple of hours walking through the exhibits. So much American history woven in to the Negro Leagues history. It's awe-inspiring to learn the stories of the teams and players. There were so many obstacles for these men, but they loved the game and persevered. Definitely worth visiting!
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
