Spend time learning about why Harriet Tubman is called the Moses of her People. She lived in Auburn following the Civic War and was friends with William Seward and many other prominent local folks.

Was on a visit to Auburn from London UK Looking for something to kill time. Spent a very intresting few hours learning about Harriet Tubman and the underground railroad. Bought two books to donate to my local college in london so more people would learn too. Great way to spend a few hours

I visited on a Thursday afternoon with three women friends. We had an enthusiastic tour guide who took us through the house and then spent a lot of time in the visitor center going through the timeline with us. You gain a very good understanding of her life and works and an appreciation for her courage. There is a lot... More

We visited on a rainy Thursday and had the place to ourselves. You definitely want to have the tour, which start on the hour. Without the tour, it is just a bunch of pictures and text at the visitor center, and you don't get to see the house. Our host really put a human face on Harriet's life. I had... More

Having read about her as a child and being inspired by her courage and determination (never mind the survival skills of traveling hundreds of miles of wilderness repeatedly while avoiding capture) I enjoyed the story of her life and how it fit into the events of the times. Nice personal tour for $5.

Wish we'd gotten there earlier, we just missed the last tour, which was at 3pm. They let us walk around the visitor center, though- which gave us a lot of interesting background on her life. In the ads, though, there's no mention of the cost of the tour, which was $5. per adult. Not a big deal, but would have... More

Walking through Harriet Tubman's house brings to life just how courageous this woman was and sends a message that one person can make a difference.

The presentation is a concise way to understand the historical events at the time of Harriet Tubman's accomplishments. The presenter was very personable and included children in the audience. Great stop for children and adults
