  • Good museum with very friendly people. Nice displays presented with a good flow to tell the story of Negro league baseball. The film is a bit dated but still great and a must-see. Not quite as many artifacts as I was hoping to see, but the replica lockers are fun nonetheless. Gift shop prices were reasonable for high-quality merchandise. Most notably, the people at the admission desk and gift shop were friendly and very helpful (they even offered to call a cab for me!).
  • My visit was such a great experience. Satchel Paige was a legend even when i was a kid, so to see so much information about him in his town was a stroke of fortune. All the greats are here, and the staff was so nice. I’d recommend having a couple hours set aside to attend. Admission was very affordable.
