Alphapointe Fundraiser with CCVI

This was a fantasy experience hosted by Alphapointe, service workshop for blind adults, and they really hit a home run! Super catering and really nice museum.

I really enjoyed this museum. While I spent a couple of hours there you could probably breeze though in a half an hour. I spent a lot of time watching the films and reading about the players in the small hall of fame they have there.If you love baseball, you should know the history of the Negro Leagues.

While some of the exhibits seemed unrelated to the Negro Leagues, the entire experience was wonderful for it's historical significance. Highly recommended.

There is a lot of information in the museum. They also have a live size baseball field that you are allowed to step onto the field.

This was an unknown museum to me. I went here with friends and was surprised by the quality of the displays. The museum is not very large but it is loaded with great small displays. If you are in KC you should take the time and visit to learn about a part of baseball that many of us know little... More

One of the original Negro teams, Kansas City Monarchs. There was considerable information from Owners to players like Satchel Page amongst many. Great stories. Short media presentation. Two hours is all you need.

If you love baseball and history, this is the place for you! A good short film narrated by James Earl Jones begins the process, then a time line is provided for the history of the negro leagues with plenty of artifacts displayed.

This place is amazing. Historically correct, interesting facts and artifacts. Strategically located across from the YMCA that started it hall. While you are there walk across the hall and set the Jazz and Blues Museum.

The museum was good. Very informative. It's definitely for anyone into baseball or black history. The only thing I did not like was the front desk. As I saw a review from 2012, the same thing happened to me this weekend. We walked up to the desk and the lady is having a personal conversation...didn't say one moment, didn't look... More

Rich in history with great exhibits and short films. Spent about 1 1/2 hours and read everything and saw one of the films in entirety. Absolutely loved it and wished my kids were with me.
