Where are we going today?

Through the inspiration of Horace M. Peterson III (1945-1992), founder of the Black Archives of Mid-America, a group of local historians, business leaders, and former baseball players came together to create the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum in the early 1990s. It functioned out of a small, one room office in the Lincoln Building, which is located in the Historic 18th & Vine Jazz District of Kansas City, MO.

    Rev. Good African American history with regard to players of today. This is a very interesting project. Watch the movie narrated by James Earl Jones. Very informative in such a short period of time.

    This experience I had on this trip was probably one of the best I ever had. In my life. I feel like a rich man for the knowledge I gained here. The Negro Leagues Baseball Museum is so much more than a baseball museum. This place is something every American(every human being for that matter) needs to experience. I learned more about american history in 2 hrs than I did in 4 years of highschool. Go see Bob and the crew today..and tell Bob hi for me too. Amazing man Amazing Place #Buck100

    This is an awesome exhibit if you love baseball, history, or both! The NLBM is relevant to baseball today in countless ways. Incredible.
