A great tribute for one of Cambridge's famous citizens. She was a courageous woman. The museum is an easy walking distance from other attractions and activities in the downtown area.

My husband and I stopped in to visit the museum and educational center to learn more about Harriet Tubman, the Underground Railroad, etc. We learned a lot and have so much to take home to our students! The docent was passionate about telling the story of Harriet and making sure that we had seen all of the exhibits that were... More

We snuck in during the Taste of Cambridge festival evening. The person on duty was really dedicated to the history of Harriet Tubman and the Underground Railroad, with an almost spiritual fervor. I will remember her vivid and detailed description of how someone in Philadelphia kept track of the Railroad travelers (secretly to prevent the info from being used to... More

We arrived and it wasn't open even though the sign said it would be open. My eight year old daughter is very disappointed.

Well I was trying to give this place a shot. It is off the beaten path, and my daughter is learning about Harriet Tubman. The sign on the door said open at noon. We were early so we decided to eat lunch and see the town. When we came back it was still closed. My daughter was disappointed. It was... More

This Musuem is worth a visit if you are interested in learning about Ms. Tubman's journey helping to free slaves. A small but determined woman who fought until the end to abolish slavery m

We tried to make a quick stop at the Harriet Tubman Museum but there was so much to see that we were there much longer than expected. There are photos and artifacts and videos to tell the story. Must see for those who want our children to learn to be brave and make a difference in the world.

This museum is very small and doesn't take long to see, but it's really just getting started, so that's understandable. I think it would benefit a lot from getting some exhibits of historical articles to supplement the current displays, which are mostly just things to read. They do have a very good documentary about Harriet Tubman and the Underground Railroad.

This small storefront museum honors the life and work of Harriet Tubman, one of the most important figures in the U.S. anti-slavery movement and the "General" of the Underground Railroad. It has been maintained for decades by a dedicated group of heroic local volunteers. This underserved and underfunded museum deserves the necessary support to maintain its mission as a significant...
