Remarkable viewing the home and imagining life as she lived it. Brave and courageous woman who changed lives and history.

My friend and I joined the tour about 3/4 of the way through because the tour guide asked are you joining us? We were just going to look at the grounds having read that her house is not accessible. So we sheepishly said yes and got about 5 minutes of the tour of the home for the aged which had... More

Learned many fascinating facts about Harriet Tubman and her life. There is a good bit of reading in the museum so this tour is most appropriate for children who can read or would be attentive if an adult is reading to them. At this time, you can only enter the one home on the property in addition to the museum.... More

Great history here and a good learning experience for both children and adults. The tour of the property really adds to the experience. It is very interesting to lean what happened to Harriet after the Underground Railroad.

We were keen to visit Harriet's home but it was not open and it was unclear why. It is also not advertised in local media or tourism boards? We visited her grave but the home would have been nice to see.

I wish the house were finished so I could have toured it. But the info in the info center was very interesting. Lots to learn and a place to take your children to learn a little more about way back when. A must to come back when the house is restored.

I learned so much at The Harriet Tubman House. The tour guides were very knowledgeable. There is a house to visit and timelines and exhibits to read through. The just got national historic status last year. It's a part of our history that is important to remember.

The museum definitely needs as some funding. That said the tour guide was great and the museum has a detailed history of her life. You cannot tour the house for now. But you can see the home she built for aged and infirmed. The park is supposed to get federal funding. That should speed up the rehab of her house.

So disappointed that we never found this open and were told by residents that you could never be sure if it was open or not. If this is a reason you are coming, strongly suggest calling first. Only reason I put terrible was because I didn't know any other way to make a comment.
