  • I love this place. The history is just awesome. This place has many community activities as well. If you need to learn some black history, you gotta come to this museum
  • Great experience! provides an in-depth view of the rich history. Has a great flow. The fact that it is in the same building as the Jazz museum is also nice.
  • This was such a fantastic museum if you enjoy baseball. It takes about 2-3 hours to go through (maybe less if you aren't as big of a baseball fan). Well worth the $10.
  • Great tribute to the Negro Baseball Leagues and their players. The museum offers a wide ranging historic time line of African-American baseball players through stories. photos, videos and memorabilia. My favorite part was interacting with the life sized bronze statues of the great players such as Satchel Paige.
  • The History within is monuMEntal to the very gaME I enjoy today.
