We took six upper-elementary school aged kids to the Harriet Tubman museum and were very impressed. There were many examples of things from Harriet's life and words she spoke and wrote. We also watched a short video that the kids were very interested in. It was both informative and captured their attentions well. The museum is not very big, but... More

This seems to be a work in progress but we wanted to visit it as part of the Harriet Tubman Trail. A DVD was shown, which made the visit worth while. We tried to visit all of the sites on the trail, but we gave up on a few. We did not have GPS and the directions given were not... More

This small museum has a lot of information about the Harriet Tubman and the underground railroad. It's not fancy, but it's worth the 20-30 minutes it takes to go through it. The volunteers were happy to talk to us about any questions we had.

They don't open on time. All the surrounding shops told us so and I'm standing outside waiting. No pride or respect. They should feel lucky to work/volunteer here on the behalf of such an important woman. Don't bother coming it won't be open.

Not a huge museum, but the volunteer on duty Saturday afternoon was very gracious, earnest and helpful. They have lots of literature and videos for kids and a terrific map and guide for the Harriet Tubman Underground Railroad Byway driving tour. It's now on our list of destinations for future trips.

A nice museum, nestled into downtown Cambridge, has a fairly comprehensive history of Harriet Tubman. The video that was playing was a little too repetitive, with different historians saying the same thing over and over, but it is definitely worth a 30 minute drop-by when you are strolling through town.

Harriet Tubman was the most famous "conductor" on the Underground Railroad, the name given to the process of moving escaped slaves northward during the nineteenth century. This museum is very small but quite interesting. The building located in downtown Cambridge, MD is a bit difficult to find but worth the search. In addition to the permanent walls of displays, a...

This place is easy to miss.......it is nestled in downtown Cambridge with a wide array of images, videos, artifacts, and "storytellers". During our visit, the array of ages, ethnicities were vast albeit the size of the crowd was low in numbers each person there seemed to be gleaning insight at different stations in this museum. There isn't a fee to... More

This is cute little museum tribute to Harriet Tubman. I really liked seeing the pictures of Harriet Tubman at different ages. However, it is so small that it is almost hard to call it a museum. It is a little more than a wall, but I loved the opportunity and effort. It is still a good place to stop if... More

The museum in located in downtown Cambridge, MD. There is plenty of free parking and many shops to browse. This nice museum covers the life of Harriet Tubman, a Conductor of the underground railroad. The information, pictures and artifacts provides a fantastic view into the life and accomplishments of Mrs. Tubman. For me it was a true history lesson.
