This was the highlight of our time on the Eastern Shore. The national park service has done an outstanding job. We went slowly reading and listening to every display. It was moving, truly moving. I am very grateful to have experienced this part of local...More

Excellent interpretive visitor center for the life and times of Harriet Tubman. We were there just after they opened so may still be adding displays.

Fairly new national park but it’s so well laid out. Gives the entire story of this amazing woman and really allows you to see the trials of a slave on the Underground Railroad. Off the path but worth the time.

This museum was pointed out to us to see after we kayaked parts of the nearby Blackwater NWR. This area of Maryland is highly publicizing several sites associated with Harriet Tubman's life. In addition to the sites, this recently constructed National Park Service visitor center...More
