Tripadvisors tilnærming til anmeldelser
Hver Tripadvisor-anmeldelse går gjennom et automatisert sporingssystem før den legges ut. Dette systemet samler inn informasjon som svarer på følgende spørsmål: Hvordan, hva, hvor og når. Hvis systemet oppdager noe som muligens strider imot retningslinjene våre for fellesskapet, blir anmeldelsen ikke publisert.
Når systemet oppdager et problem, kan en anmeldelse automatisk avvises, sendes til anmelderen for bekreftelse eller gjennomgås manuelt av teamet vårt av innholdsspesialister. Disse spesialistene jobber døgnet rundt for å opprettholde kvaliteten av anmeldelsene på nettstedet vårt.
Teamet vårt sjekker hver anmeldelse som er lagt ut på nettstedet og bestrides av fellesskapet vårt for ikke å møte retningslinjene våre for fellesskapet.

A fantastic experience for any lover of baseball or history in general. It tells a great story in a fantastic setting. Birmingham may not be the first place you think of when you think of baseball, but it holds it own against any of the more famous baseball stops and this museum is part of that. The memorabilia is great, of course, but the history is wonderful as well. And unlike so many books about the subject, the museum does not end with Jackie Robinson. The museum is free admission with donations accepted. Combine this with a trip out to Rickwood and an evening game watching the hometown Barons at Regions Field and you have a perfect day.

This is a wonderful museum. It’s small so you can spend as little as 30 minutes inside. A lot of little-known history inside and incredible memorabilia. The director of the museum greeted us and gave us an overview. He remained available to talk baseball and answer questions. Looking forward to going back once they add the add the women in baseball section. Free parking is available in the parking garage next to the museum.

The Negro Southern League Museum is in downtown Birmingham. When I called to find out if a tour was possible, I was told it was all self-guided and would take about 45 minutes to go through. It took us almost double that.

Here is the history of African American baseball told through the eyes of Birmingham. Funded by the city, the Museum houses the largest collection of Negro League baseball artifacts in the nation.

The earliest Black baseball teams began in the 1890’s from local businesses like Sloss, Tennessee Coal and Stockham. Industrial league baseball is still played today. Professional baseball took off when the Birmingham Black Barons team was formed in 1920. Many of its players came from the industrial teams. 1920 also saw the creation of the Negro Southern League. The Southern League was the route for great Black players to go on to the Negro American League and Negro National League.

The stories of Black Barons players were on storyboards, including those who moved into the major leagues after Jackie Robinson’s 1947 integration. At least five are now in the Baseball Hall of Fame. The Barons played until 1963. The Barons ball park, Rickwood Field, is the oldest professional baseball park in the country and is now preserved by a non-profit.

Artifacts on display include catchers’ masks, bats, over 1,600 autographed baseballs, uniforms, used baseball gloves, trophies, a 1907 player’s contract and assorted other memorabilia, all original! A hologram of Satchel Paige shows him doing one of his famous wind-ups and pitches. Some of his equipment and a uniform from the 1940’s is on display. One wall is devoted to Jackie Robinson. Another section has original grandstand seating saved from historic ball parks associated with the Negro League. Everything has detailed legends that tell who, what, where and why it is significant.

While we were there a 7th-grade class came through in a whirlwind, doing a treasure hunt for special memorabilia. Then Fred struck up a conversation with an ex-New Yorker also celebrating his 80th birthday and they shared baseball memories and experiences from ‘way back when’ as we moved around.

The Museum itself is relatively small – just one floor – but the collection and stories were well worth the visit.

We were met at the front by someone who gave a good overview of what we would see in the museum. It's not very big, but everything is laid out nicely. You get a good amount of information on the Negro Southern League, the players, Negro Leagues in general, and how segregation played a role in baseball in the area. No charge, so donation only. Worth a stop for baseball fans.

We waffled on whether we should come here after spending a long day traveling from Anniston to Birmingham and doing all the major Civil Rights stops in both cities, but this museum is worth it! It has so much to see and there is more to learn than I would have guessed.

We are doing college tour visits in & around the South and found ourselves with half of a day to further explore the city of Birmingham. We first tried to go to Birmingham Civil Rights Institute but we couldn’t buy tickets online, the last box office tickets sold at 1:45: place closed at 3.
Then we tried to go to Arlington Antebellum home but it’s more of a house and garden tour vs. a true plantation so that got nixed.
Then tried to go to the Birmingham Zoo but it was closed. We found ourselves at the Negro Southern League Museum which was perfect!
It combined our desire to see more about civil rights in this town + our love of baseball. It’s also situated right next to Regions Field where the Birmingham Barons play and where we were headed for an evening game. We highly recommend this attraction!

This small museum has a great display for visitors. It was not crowded the day we went and the museum is free, and donations are accepted. There are exhibits of equipment including bats, uniforms, catchers equipment. There is a wall filled with single signed baseballs of players who played in the Negro Southern League. The Negro Southern League was one of the more successful Negro leagues, lasting several decades, until integration ended the segregation in the game. It is downtown adjacent to the Birmingham Barons ballpark and nearby parking is extremely difficult to find unless you get lucky and find a spot. it doesn't take long to visit this museum and they have a small selection of T shirts and souvenirs available for purchase.

My second visit in 15 months, taking my mother and brother for their first visits.

The wall of autographed baseballs is a treat in itself. It's a celebration not only of the fabled Negro Leagues, but also of corporate-sponsored teams, all-stars, and Black baseball players from Birmingham.
