The Harriet Tubman Underground Railroad National Monument was created by President Barack Obama under the Antiquities Act on March 25, 2013.

  • What an awesome place! I was there tonight for the premier of the new film for visitors and if you havent been yet, you NEED to go and take your kids or your friends' kids! Harriet's story needed to be told like this film tells it for so long. She was so much more than just a conductor on the Underground Railroad! And the setting of this museum is just beautiful! Make a special trip, or include it on your trip to the beaches, but whatever you do, go and visit this museum which is now so enhanced by the film about Harriet's life!
  • A small but well thought out and nicely laid out National Park. It has a beautiful/tranquil setting There are a few interactive exhibits (great for kiddos!), directions and maps for a self-guided tour on HT's trail, a bike/walking trail, a food pavilion, and a very nice souvenir shop. An open and inviting space for all. Highly recommended!
  • The history and natural setting is what drew me here. Learning more about this strong amazing woman and her quest to free as many people as she could from the bondage of slavery. Harriet Tubman was a truly awesome hero!
  • We drove 2 hours out of our way to visit and it was well worth it. Excellent exhibits and beautiful park. Loves the rangers as well.
  • Visited today for the first time with my mother and sister. It was FANTASTIC! My gosh so enlightening and enjoyable. I learned so much more about Mrs. Tubman. The atmosphere is just right in its hideaway, serene type setting. The rangers are knowledgable, friendly, and welcoming. My mother and I plan on coming down again (we live in Charles County) in the very near future! :D
