Oh how I love baseball and the stories of Buck O'Neill, Satchel Paige and Jackie Robinson! Great museum, full of history, pictures, and artifacts from the Negro Leagues. Also, the Jazz Museum is attached to this same building. If you love Jazz and the history of it, you can tour both attractions.
If you have some time on your hands while in the KC area, I would recommend a visit to this educational museum. It was nice to see and learn about talented African American people and their contributions to society in a positive light.
Have visited this Museum several times and always get a kick out of it and the area. Fascinating history and not just baseball. Good lessons in sociology and human behviour in general. Take in other neighborhood attractions while there. The Buck (O'Neil) stopped here.
This was a nice little museum. My husband loves baseball so he enjoyed it quite a bit. I enjoy seeing new things so enjoyed myself but it wasn't the most interesting museum I've been to. There was no picture taking allowed inside the museum so that was kinda disappointing. It didn't really take me long to go through it but... 更多
I wasn't all that excited about seeing this, but boy was I in for a pleasant surprise. I learned so much about the early years of baseball and more! The exhibits are very engaging as they use a variety of media (though there is a lot of reading). This is a must see when you are in Kansas City.
While on our annual "Boys Baseball Pilgrimage" we always try to experience the local culture, cuisine and history. This year's trip brought us from St Louis (2 games) to KC (1 game). Along the way, the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum was on the top of our Cultural Learning experience. What a fantastic adventure. The entire neighborhood in which the NLBM... 更多
Great museum celebrating a shameful period of time in baseball, when african-american baseball players had to play in their own league instead of the major leagues. Plenty of items from the early days of the Negro Leagues to their end after the majors integrated. Well worth a visit to see about this largely ignored era.
This is in the same building as the Jazz Museum and you can get a combined ticket but this is by far the better of the two. Segregation deprived many of the chance to see some of the best players every to play. This museum pays them proper respect and does a great job of telling not only about the... 更多
This is a small but must see baseball museum. You will learn about the history of the Negro players struggles. If your in the military it is free for every one in your party.
The museum is a great experience for adults and older teens wanting to learn about the history of baseball. First class exhibits with great displays. The staff is incredibly friendly and focused on ensuring a first class experience for all. A discount for admission is offered if you also visit the Jazz museum (they share a common lobby). I would... 更多
