The visitor's center gives a fascinating timeline of key event's of her life and shows shows other important historical events in the anti-slavery movement. Also, her house is beautifully restored and worth the visit.

Spend time learning about why Harriet Tubman is called the Moses of her People. She lived in Auburn following the Civic War and was friends with William Seward and many other prominent local folks.

Was on a visit to Auburn from London UK
Looking for something to kill time.
Spent a very intresting few hours learning about Harriet Tubman and the underground railroad.
Bought two books to donate to my local college in london so more people would learn too.
Great way to spend a few hours

I visited on a Thursday afternoon with three women friends. We had an enthusiastic tour guide who took us through the house and then spent a lot of time in the visitor center going through the timeline with us. You gain a very good understanding of her life and works and an appreciation for her courage. There is a lot of reading in the visitor center but it is well done and very educational. She is an inspiring figure in American history. I hope she gets her due, she did so much for slaves and all of humanity.

We visited on a rainy Thursday and had the place to ourselves. You definitely want to have the tour, which start on the hour. Without the tour, it is just a bunch of pictures and text at the visitor center, and you don't get to see the house. Our host really put a human face on Harriet's life. I had always known that Harriet Tubman was a special individual, but until today I never really knew why. TODAY I DO !
