  • Great combo tickets for the Jazz museum and the Museum of Negro League baseball. A lot of interactive pieces along the historic timeline of jazz in America. Also, a nice performance by Preston...

  • I enjoyed this museum-it had a lot of good information, and it was interesting to learn the role Kansas City played in the development of jazz. I only knew New Orleans, New York and Chicago. My only complaint is that there doesn’t seem to be any organization to the museum. Exhibits seem to be randomly placed.
  • This was a fun experience. There is a lot of listening stations, a replica of an old school jazz room, very fun experience. Wasn't too familiar with jazz so I can't say I knew everything there but I definitely learned a lot !
