A job well done... excellent and informative.... but there was no docent or guide to ask questions... you are left to your own devices to explore and learn which is fine....
... it would have been better if there was someone there with knowledge to field the questions which invariably arise...

the field that was set up with the statues of players was wonderful....

four stars overall

Nice museum to visit. Parking was a little odd and I felt that the cost was a little high. They don't allow photo's which would have been nice to do.

Pretty cool. It's small though. Really cool history. I enjoyed myself and would recommend going if you want to kill 30 minutes to an hour.

This museum is located in a historic part of Kansas City, so it's a neat place to see. The actual museum is small, but it houses many artifacts from the times of segregated baseball, so it's definitely worth a visit. The highlight for me was the baseball diamond with life-sized metal players.

If you are a baseball fan this is a must on your list. From the James Earl Jones narrated film to the uniform/baseball displays, this is an excellent attraction. The family spent about three hours going through the museum and the time was well spent. Very well. The last surviving member of the group who formed the museum came out and chatted with us at the end of the self-guided tour.
