This impressive museum, American Jazz Museum, pays tribute to the performers who helped create the musical style we call jazz. The history of this music form is told through interactive exhibits where you can listen to performances, watch videos and learn more about the greatest jazz musicians. You will also learn about the history of African-Americans artists in Kansas City and their many contributions to our society. The museum, which adjoins the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum, is available on rent for special events as well. Group tours are available. Call ahead or check the website for more details.
