Negro League Baseball Museum: Kansas City

NLBM Entrance

As they say, “great things come in small packages” and this is true for the Negro League Baseball Museum or NLBM for short.  The NLBM was founded in 1990 and moved to its current location in 1997, but you would have thought that it just opened yesterday.  Everything in the museum looks crisp and brand …
