This is, for real baseball fans, the closest thing to Cooperstown you could ever hope to see. This has been a dream visit after watching Ken Burn's wonderful series on PBS. If you love baseball this is a can't miss experience.

This was a highlight of the weekend. Love the exhibits and the look and questions from my child about the negro league, which opened the door for more questions. Awesome time and would love to go back.

This was a good museum, but there was almost too much information to take in. Every square inch of each wall was covered with stories, pictures and memorabilia. There was no real flow on how to proceed from place to place and no real focus...More

We love baseball but even if you don't this is a must see museum. It is small so doesn't take a lot of time but packed with fast enacting stories about the Negro League. Everyone needs to know what it was like for these players....More

You should allow a couple hours, it's not huge but there is lots to see, you could breeze through in one hour, if you like to look at the details then plan on 2. There is also an adjacent Jazz museum and you could do both... More
