Visited the museum with my family today. I am a baseball junkie and I was blown away by the depth this place creates. The historical presence of the former players and the tributes they present are unreal. Loved ever minute and step I took!

Been to Cooperstown several times and I loved finally able to visit this museum. Very moving experience and you must go and bring the kids to see here and even at Cooperstown in NY

There is a lot of history here, but not very interactive. My 8 year old did not want to sit and read everything. We were done in 30 minutes. I think he might have enjoyed it more if he was a little older.

A fine dedication to the black ball players who perservered in a segregated city - from uniforms to signed balls, the history of southern segregated baseball unfolds here - for a true baseball fan this is nirvana

This museum is a hidden gem. There is memorabilia from the Negro Leagues and some of the first Negro players to go to the major league. There was an exhibit on Jackie Robinson that was very informative. One of Willie Mays' jersey is on display....More

This is a small museum, you can do a thorough visit in less than an hour. It is still well worth a visit. The Negro Leagues are fading from memory, but they were a vital part of American culture and featured some of the best...More
