To celebrate Black History Month during the month of February, the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum has teamed up with the Kansas City Royals to cover the cost of admission for all visitors for the entire month.
The Negro Leagues Baseball Museum is located at 1616 East 18th Street in Kansas City, Missouri. The museum is open Mondays during the month of February, including President’s Day 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and on Sundays from noon to 5:00 p.m.
“We can’t thank the Kansas City Royals and Royals Charities enough for their generous support that will give fans an incredible opportunity to experience the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum,” said Bob Kendrick, President of the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum. “The Negro Leagues Baseball Museum is a powerful and inspirational story of athletes who refused to accept the notion that they were unfit to share in the joys of our national pastime. Their passion would not only change the game, but it also helped change our country for the better. The life lessons that stem from this story of triumph over adversity also vividly demonstrate the importance of diversity, equity, and inclusion. We hope this gesture by the Royals will motivate even more fans to visit.”
