Alot to see and an awsome adventure, learning about American history and the process in which freedom had to be obtained is remarkable. Alot of real humans died so we as Africans in America have the rights and privileges that we are entitled to as Humans. Harriet Tubman is and will always be a real American Hero.

The Underground Railroad, its history, artifacts, and the people involved are well categorized and presented in a prominent location on Race "Main" Street in Cambridge. The volunteers who man the museum are very helpful and are a storehouse of information. This is a newly formed museum but has a great deal of literature, pictures and artifacts. Well worth seeing.

Clearly the history of slavery in the United States is an important topic, although the vast majority of slaves were shipped to Brazil (3,500,000) and the Caribbean (1,500,000) as opposed to the US (500,000) (US Virgin Island University booklet). The indignities and atrocities imposed on the slaves should have been covered in more detail, instead of merely mentioned in passing.... More

One reviewer said "passionate but in need of a facelift." Both items are true. We were the first to arrive last Saturday and had the undivided attention of the passionate Mr. Donald Pinder, who was knowledgeable and forthcoming with information. He was trying to do ten things at once. I'd love to see this place get proper funding. I gather... More

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.

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.
