Negro Leagues Baseball Museum [MO]
The Negro Leagues Baseball Museum presents the history of African American baseball between the late 1800s and 1960s, when leagues were largely segregated. Exhibits include league information, historic photographs, information on African American businesses and period styles, and statues. The interior entrance emulates a period baseball stadium. The museum is located in Kansas City's 18th and Vine district, historically central to the city's African American population.
The museum offers multi-media exhibits; three films, including an eight-minute oral history interview presentation; and self-guided tours. Reservations are required for groups of over 25. These groups will be offered an introduction and, if possible, a guided tour.
