One of the best sports museums I've been to. Tells a story that needs to be told. Spent two hours inside. Well worth the price of admission. You won't look at baseball in the same light once you leave.

This museum is a short drive off the freeway. There was road work in front of the museum but There is plenty of parking behind the museum (back by the sports academy). We found a two for one coupon, so our total cost was $15....More

It would be a good choice, especially if you had only a few hours. And the original Arthur Bryant’s BBQ is just a few blocks away. Combine those two for a great taste of KC history.
