I am so glad to have visited this museum near Harriet's hometown today. I thought I was her biggest fan. But then I saw the people today who keep her spirit alive. They even have an annual Harriet Tubman conference, which I will return to Cambridge to attend. I got a book and a guide for a driving tour of... More

we spent almost 2 hours here -- reading through the displays, watched 2 videos (20 & 30 min), and talking with the volunteer docent, a retired teacher who had grown up in the area. his enjoyment of sharing information about Tubman and the surrounding area was infectious. we left the center and toured UGR sites south of town for another...

First time visit to Maryland this was a pretty elegant Sight for Soar eyes. It is amazing how much history there is in this small Lil Ol town!

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.
