With an upcoming movie and the change in the $20.00 bill, I was very interested to learn more about this heroine. Harriet Tubman Davis came to life through our guide we called, Pastor. His passion to help us understand Mrs. Tubman's life and the important role she played in history was inspiring. I wanted to learn more. Pastor then led... More

The best part of the experience was the gentleman that provided the overview of Harriet Tubman's life and conducted the tour. He was so very well informed and you could tell truly enjoys what he does in sharing her life with everyone that visits. The tour of the home was good, however his presentation made this terrific.

Now that Harriet Tubman is going to be on our $20 bill, I wanted to know more about her. And boy, is there ever a lot to know! This unassuming visit started with a 25-minute review of the historical time line before, during, and after Harriet's life. Our docent, Paul--also the site manager--did a masterful job and the time flew... More

The Tubman House is a very interesting tour, and it was due to the very animated and engaging guide. Paul tells Harriet Tubman's story with dialogue and impersonations that make the facts of her life come alive. I knew I would like this place, but thanks to Paul I loved it!

Located right outside of Auburn, NY. There's plenty to engage the history buffs in your family. There are 4 buildings on the 25+acres. Simple but moving tribute to a great lady.

We visited the Harriet Tubman Home in Auburn, NY on a street that was once the home of William Seward, John Foster Dulles, Theodore Case (sound films). It is time that people know more about Ms Tubman. Her home and 'visitor's center' are located on South Street where we can learn more about the Underground Railroad and abolitionist movement.

The site provided me with the opportunity to learn a lot more about Harriet Tubman. The tour narrator was very well informed. The museum with info about Harriet Tubman's life was really good.

My wife and I visited the Harriet Tubman home in Auburn recently. We enjoyed the 20 min or so pre tour talk, it was very well done and so informative. We thought we knew a lot about Harriet Tubman but, soon realized we had only touched the surface of information about this incredible woman. Unfortunately the actual house where MS... More
