We really enjoyed the museum and learned so much about what the slaves went through. It was so sad to know that Ohio was the North and Kentucky the South and that the ships came up the Ohio River which was the border between the...More
We visited this museum and exhibition on a stop in Cincinnati. The visit is a must-see to understand the whole history of slavery and liberation, on the very ground where the North and South were battling.

Be prepared for an emotional and informative experience. Very good at educating, explaining, and celebrating a lineage and cultural dilemma that isn’t fully expounded up in common culture. Absolutely worth the visit. Plan for 2+ hours minimum.
