  18th & Vine Museum - Negro Leagues Baseball & Jazz
by basstbn

I CAN NOT RECOMMEND THIS MUSEUM TOO HIGHLY. The Negro Leagues Baseball Museum should be seen by every person that enters this city for its educational, social and entertainment value. Gain a fresh perspective on the history of sports in the USA, as well as race relations. The centerpiece of the museum is "The Field of Legends." Little Leaguers can stand next to 12 live-size bronze cast sculptures of the most important players in Negro Leagues History. The museum shares a building with the Kansas City Jazz Museum; a dual admission may be purchased.

Address: 1616 East 18th Street, Kansas City, Missouri
Directions: In the historic 18th and Vine District, across the street from the Gem Theatre, and next door to The Blue Room.
