I took a bunch of my motorcycle-riding friends to the museum and everyone had a great time and learned some very interesting African American history- much of which I had never heard or read before. I would highly recommend this museum to anyone and everyone...More

Sports is the common denominator in the world that brings everyone together. If there's any one place in the world where there is equality, it is probably sports. That was something that didn't always exist. We've come a long way in sports. Why can't society...More

Not only is the museum filled with baseball memorabilia and the history of baseball, but it is a compelling piece of African American history.

As a professional historian, I knew a bit about the history of the Negro Leagues, but this museum was not only informative, but comprehensive. If you've been too any other sports museum in the country, this likely ranks right up with the best of them.

This is a must see when you visit Kansas City. However, you must take your time and read as much as possible to truly get the feel. Great displays! I learned so much!

Nice museum. A lil small. Wasn't my favorite part of the trip. Admission was $10 per person. There's no photography inside the museum. Parking was close and it was free. The Jazz museum is located in the same building sharing a common lobby with a...More

I expected a lot from this museum and left slightly underwhelmed. There were two staff members in the gift store and those were the only people I saw I the entire museum while I was there. It would've been nice if there were some people...More

Well done history of a sad period when Afro-Americans were barred from MLB. Very well done. Good educational experience. The museum is in the jazz area of Kansas City.

You should allow a couple hours, it's not huge but there is lots to see, you could breeze through in one hour, if you like to look at the details then plan on 2. There is also an adjacent Jazz museum and you could do both... More
