  • Had a great visit to this superb museum. A wonderful gentleman (wish I could remember his name) took us around the museum. He also took us outside to view the murals. He said he was a volunteer...  more »
  • We learned several new things about Harriet Tubman and her life. It was very basic, though. There weren’t any artifacts displayed and we felt the info lacked detail on her “trips” and plans on the...  more »

  • There are some interesting details that I didn't remember when I was taught about this heroic woman in school... It's downtown and there are plug-in parking spots for hybrids and Tesla's within walking distance...a NICE surprise!! We were there in the middle of the week so traffic was minimal...I can't vouch for any other time of the week... Worth a visit if you're in the area!!
  • Very educational. This is a place where it would be inspirational for school children to visit. Lots of informative graphics and settings to help understand the heritage. Beautiful
  • This tiny, hidden museum is truly a gem! I took 5 kids (ages 5-12) and my 70-yr-old parents, and every single one of us was overcome with the power of this place. First, walk around the corner and take in the new mural. It's incredibly moving, and it set the tone for what we were about to soak in, inside. Just the life of Harriet Tubman would've been enough to amaze, but they have so much more. I don't know how they packed it all in that space! Definitely worth the trip!!!
  • I took my 2 biracial granddaughters to educate them Harriet Tubman. They are 6 and 9. Good readers. There was nothing interactive. The movie was only black impressive figures talking Bout Harriet Tubmans impact on history. The kids got very little from th ed museum(sadly) since there was so much READING. I am a teacher and we had the museum to ourselves since we got there early, but all they wanted to do was touch things and see a REAL MOVIE!
  • Phenomenal!!! Everyone should visit this museum. Very well put together. Inspiring and made me so proud.
