Does not seem large but it is and combined with the Jazz Museum you can spend hours! Very well laid out - nice flow and very special unique items.

We attended this with two of our adult children. Explained early history of baseball and efforts to keep blacks out of the game. Sad to see the lengths people would go to to prevent others from participating. An important part of our history to know.

A great museum with a great story. Tells of the troubles and triumphs the black player had in the early to mid 1900's. told from a positive point of view of the players and fans. Definitely worth a stop!
