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.

  • It’s free during the month of February for Black History Month, so it was very crowded, but there were no Karen’s or impatient people. There’s a lot of history and a lot to read and see. We spent a couple hours in there. It is definitely worth it if you’re a baseball fan, even if you’re not it’s so much history that is unknown to many and unspoken, so to take the time and moment to learn about it is worth the time. Enjoy!
  • Wonderful place to appreciate the contributions and conditions that great players had to face. Sad that museum was smaller than I expected with less artifacts. Video displays were very dated and wish more people would contribute to modernize, which is sorely needed. The Era and the people should never be lost to time...we should all support the museum and make it the deserving showcase it should be for the other half of America's Pastime. (Would be great to also find a way to expand it a little to include Latinos, Women, and other cultures who were involved as well)
