My kids and I visited here. It was very interesting. We were the only ones there. The ladies inside were very helpful and nice. We mostly did a slef guided tour withing the main building. BUT there were plenty of ladies there should I have had questions. It was a bit boring though as some historic places like this generally... More

It was so nice to go into it, to see one or two items that belonged to her. Then to go visit her cemetery stone in Fort Hill Cemetery.

I called ahead to plan a school visit. It turned out that even though the website said--and still says--they were open 10-4, they are actually closed for the winter, open by appointment only. So I made an appointment about two weeks in advance. I arrived with a group of 20 people and no one was there. I called the number... More

We enjoyed the museum and learned a lot in just over an hour. Really great to go to a place that is so dearly loved by the tour guide (Paul). His knowledge and his certain happiness in sharing it made the visit all the more special.

The tour begins with a great tour of Harriet Tubman's life following a wall chart with so much information...but the guide is fabulous. He is very well versed in all things Tubman. Then you get to go to the house. There is more to come in the future here, but it is well worth the visit. My husband's great great... More

Not that much of a tour in comparison to other historical homes throughout the USA although the history of Harriet Tubman is certainly worth (the reason I visited) the tour and a decent donation for the maintenance and upkeep. Anyone not familiar with the history, it's a must visit in the area and certainly anyone interested in area history. Just... More

This is a great tour and the docent is excellent. I was not familiar with her and the underground railroad and all she did to help people. She was a great women and deserves a place in history.

Tour lead by guide instructed in her life before taking into the house, more to come in the next few years, when construction of out buildings will be finished. But the barn and the house are there and you can go into the house. Very important woman and she should be honored. She is here. Very reasonable price,

I visited the attraction in June while on a church trip. I enjoyed the exhibits and the tour of the house. Very educational and glad I got to experience this.

Our guide was outstanding, she explained and dramatized Harriet Tubman's life and experiences so well that we are still talking about it and will relate it to our friends too. Interesting tour of her hospital and refuge for the poor and needy.
