At Negro Leagues Baseball Museum, you can chart the progress of black Americans in baseball from the inception of the Negro National League in 1920 to the Negro American League, which disbanded in 1960. A self-guided tour of the museum is laid out in chronological order. At the Early Years exhibit, you can learn about the origins of black Americans in baseball after the Civil War, later learn about the power of the press in relation to this subject, and eventually explore the push for equality and nonsegregation in the sport. View hundreds of photographs of players from all the leagues over a period 40 years, and watch several films, including one narrated by actor James Earl Jones.

Great experience to take the kiddos and any baseball lovers. Recommend timing your visit so that you can see the promotional video that lasts about 15 minutes. The video highlights many of the artifacts of the museum and will give them context. We will certainly be recommending this museum to other parents.
Lots to see. In a well air conditioned building. Parking is close and the people who work there are friendly and helpful. Do your self a favor and check out the jazz museum while you are there. There was live music while we were there on a Wednesday afternoon. Well worth a visit baseball fan or no.
