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.

Finally ventured over after wanting to go for years.. The tour guide was excellent. He was funny and witty and was sure to answer everyone's questions. I learned more about harriet then I ever have thought the history books. The house tour was small.. Just 3 rooms but well worth it. Small cost for the tour. $5 adults.. Students and... More

Loved my visit here. They have a nice little museum which provides a lot of information on this incredible woman's life. The old infirmary, home for veterans was interesting as well. Harriet is buried in Auburn at the historical cemetery.

The Harriet Tubman Home and Museum are 2 minutes from the Seward House so I would see both exhibits on the same day. The guide was excellent.

The home is not much to see, but the timeline that the tour guide expounded upon was excellent. She did a very good job using the illustrated timeline to explain the history of Harriet Tubman and of the land and buildings there.

i never knew much about Harriet Tubman and I wanted to hear her story. She lived her whole life to rescue others. Constantly and purposely making sacrifices and heading into danger for friends and strangers in efforts to free them from slavery, after emancipation she just found new ways to change lives...I look forward to improvements to the site now...

Ms. Carter did a wonderful job providing us information and telling Harriet's story. She also incorporated the children in the audience to make it an interactive tour. She was a lovely story teller, and really brought to life the inspiring story of Harriet Tubman.
