Very interesting & educational. Some areas might be difficult for tall people to get through as they are underground with not much head room. Also, some paths are very narrow, It was very interesting to learn about Milton's roll in the history of slavery.

Our favorite part of this museum was definitely when we got to walk through the underground tunnel. That was so cool. The rest of the tour was also really interesting, too, and this is such an incredible place to learn about and see! Everyone in our group liked it a lot!

We spend time in the Edgerton area Groupon provided the added incentive to visit this time. We were pleasantly surprised to find such an interesting museum in a relatively small town of Milton (more correctly Milton Junction). The building has been mostly preserved as it was in mid-1800s and is unique by way of its design and construction. Be sure... More

We found this museum on TripAdvisor and arrived unsure what we would find. We loved what we found. The hexagonal coaching hotel is fascinating and contains many working objects that people used for entertainment in the late 1800s (music maker, early 3-D viewer, etc) - our guide really made them come alive. The Underground Railroad tunnel is astonishing, as was... More

We learned a lot about the settlement of Wisconsin, about how inns worked in the 19th century, and about the underground railroad. Group was age 10 through 70, and we all found it interesting.

Rob provided me and a friend with a very informative tour of this well-maintained slice of 1800s life, with an incredible array of knowledge and facts at his disposal. Could answer any question. Highly recommend, it is one of the only tourable underground railroad sites in Wisconsin. Would be great for anyone with an interest in Civil War history, or... More

The Milton House is a great piece of small town history. More than the Underground Railroad -Local history as well. A must see if you're in the area.

The Milton House and Museum is a must in the study of American history. Slaves escaping from their masters in the South stopped at the Milton House (a stagecoach stop) and literally went underground.into a tunnel. It's called The Underground railroad. The hotel has been restored; and museum added in recent years. Tours by knowledgeable are given throughout the day.... More

We went through the tour of this historic home with my 15 year old son who recently broke his foot and needed to use a wheelchair. The staff was very helpful in accommodating his needs and the majority of the tour was wheelchair accessible, with the exception of the tunnel. We found the tour, house, tunnel and guide to be...

This was an excellent tour. Rob was our tour guide and answered all the questions we had. I didn't know much about the Milton House prior to the tour. Very interesting to see an actual hotel from the late 1800's and learn about Mr. Goodrich and his family. Information about the Underground Railroad was good and walking through the tunnel... More
