This impressive museum pays tribute to the music and performers within the inimitable American art form we call jazz. The history of this music is told through interactive exhibits where you can listen to performances, watch videos and learn more about the greatest jazz musicians on earth, from those perennial favorites Dizzy and Miles to those lesser known cats like Horace Peterson and Tony Williams. Visitors will also learn about the history of African-American artists in local Kansas City lore and their many contributions to the community. The museum, which adjoins the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum , rents its stage for special events and group tours are available. Call ahead or check the website for more details.
