Can't wait to visit the negro league! My husband's uncle was inducted in the National Negro Baseball League, James P. Tillman, Jr. I think he was an outfielder. But I'll find out the facts when I get there.
My wife and I took the children to this long over-looked piece of American History. We absolutely enjoyed it. My children could not stop talking about the artifacts. From the video to the interactive baseball field, it was all good. You can axctually go on the field and see the ball players sculptures. The history was wonderful. This is a must see. Stop in the store and you'll find some great items for purchase. They have sizes from children up to 5x.
enjoyed it just as much if not more than cooperstown. the life size figures of the greats on the field is almost sureal for an old ball player like me . the greatest players ever... playing the greatest game.... for ever. best in the west? maybe the best ever. have been twice and will most certainly be back again and many more times . worth the trip to KC all by itself, never mind the best bbq 2 blocks away and the jazz hall too . you wont be disappointed
If you have any appreciation for the Negro Leagues or more over Black History, this is a MUST see. What the Negro Leagues did for equality in this country is astronomical. Although this museum is about baseball, truly underling the experience is the effect that it had on society in general. I had goose bumps as I walked through with my son as we experienced the museum together.
Everyone should see this no matter what color you skin is!!!!!

I hate baseball and even I enjoyed this museum. My boyfriend drug me to it and I loved it. If you look at everything you could spend 2-3 hours there easy. It is small but packed with memorbila. It is also connected to the Jazz museum so you can hit both at once. It is in a bad part of KC, so I would hit it early in the day so you would have to be their after dark. During the day it was safe, so don't worry about it. Don't let this discourage you becasue it is well worth the $6 to get in. ($8 for both museums) At the end there is a cool store with tons of retro stuff to buy. Great for people of any age.
