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

Our visit began with a guided presentation on Harriet Tubman's life, which was well-researched and documented, and very interesting. Our guide was well-informed and kept the interest of a large and diverse group. Following his program, we had time for a more in-depthe look at the displays, and a tour of the home for the elderly that Harriet Tubman maintained... More

A bus load of friends and family went to Harriet Tubman"s home. The guide held our attention the whole time he was telling us about Harriet . He was informative, pleasant and even comical at times. After leaving her home we went to visited her gravesite.

My mom and I were on vacation in the Finger Lakes area and decided to check out some historical sites in Auburn. We arrived at the Tubman Home visitor center at about 1:15 in the afternoon, at which point we were informed that tours start on the hour, and there is no access to the home other than by tour....
