Should Jazz be on television more often? Check out: "Jamming behind the scenes with jazz greats - CBS News" http://buff.ly/1lyEM96
A 60 Minutes shoot never quite looked-- or sounded-- like this before. Life for jazz greats Wynton Marsalis and Marcus Roberts is a non-stop jam session.

A truly wonderful and educational experience. The concept of the American Jazz Museum exhibit spaces is innovative and genius. Rather than rely solely upon displays of artifacts, the exhibits include music sound recordings and videos. In order to listen to all of the music available via the new "sound showers" technology, one would have to devote several days. So, visiting the American Jazz Museum for 45 minutes or an hour does not give an accurate context to this great community resource and global treasure. And, all of this does not include taking in the John H. Baker Jazz Film Collection exhibit where 1.2 million feet of rare jazz film footage resides. Other highlights include the Horace Peterson Visitors Center and Changing Gallery. A must visit place during a trip to Kansas City! 5 STARS

The American Jazz Museum is full of Jazz Films and Music. I enjoyed the interactive displays. I could spend hours listening to Charlie Parker, Louis Armstrong and Ella Fitzgerald.

Disappointed they were closed this past Saturday with no notice on website. Bought our tickets, then asked where the Jazz Museum entrance was and she said it was closed. So I asked what we just bought. The baseball museum. After a refund, I mentioned their website didn't mention they would be closed. She stated there was a sign on the door. Wish I would have read that before we came here from MN. She was nice, but oblivious to our disappointment. Oh well.

Did not know what to expect, but thoroughly enjoyed what I did discover. Loved listening to the music stations and seeing all of the vintage album covers and photos. Jazz music is an American treasure, so my personal bias wished this museum was twice the size and full of more visitors. It's not in the most savory part of town and walking there from my hotel was an adventure in itself. My friend and I loved it though. Well worth the visit. Check out the baseball museum as well.

Worst museum we have ever visited. The staff was rude, the displays were not working or in disrepair. It was a shame to spend the $20 on what we felt like was a real shame to the Jazz Industry and all its rich history. Someone should shut the place down, dismiss the staff and start all over again.
