Located about 15-20 minutes sound of Cambridge. Rangers were very kind and informative. Facility is brand new. Exhibit was amazing and covers a lot of information about both Her life and Maryland Slavery. Trails nearby as well and a pavilion for picnics as well.

This museum was really well done. The sculptures depicting the scenes of Harriet Tubman and her life were wonderful. My admiration for Harriet Tubman grew because the museum showed how strong of a person she was despite the adversities she faced.

I was fortunate to be traveling in the area for work during the grand opening of this museum. I witnessed tears, smiles and strangers embracing. It was a humbling experience. I learned tons about Harriet Tubman and her family. The museum reinforces the darkness of...More

It's a worthwhile site to visit because of the remarkable character and accomplishments of Harriet Tubman, but the exhibits could have been more substantive or interactive. They consisted mainly of florid painted backdrops and sculptural depictions interspersed with quotes. The auditorium space does not have...More

We recently stayed two nights at a hotel/resort in Cambridge and checked out on a Sunday. We wanted to visit this museum on the way back to Washington. It would have been the perfect time since we had extra time (check-out time was 11am) and since our time at the resort was filled with other activities. But the museum is closed on Sunday! I think they are missing an opportunity for more visitors by closing on Sunday, especially since Sunday is a common day for people to be in a situation like ours. If this is for religious purposes, what better way to respect the sabbath than by honoring this courageous woman. (At least I did come home and read about her.)

I spent several hours in this museum a few months ago. I don't know, specifically, why the museum isn't open on Sundays. But, since many in the African-American community are deeply committed Christians (as was Harriet), it... More
