we spent almost 2 hours here -- reading through the displays, watched 2 videos (20 & 30 min), and talking with the volunteer docent, a retired teacher who had grown up in the area. his enjoyment of sharing information about Tubman and the surrounding area was infectious. we left the center and toured UGR sites south of town for another couple hours
Awesome Sight, Plenty of History

First time visit to Maryland this was a pretty elegant Sight for Soar eyes. It is amazing how much history there is in this small Lil Ol town!

We took six upper-elementary school aged kids to the Harriet Tubman museum and were very impressed. There were many examples of things from Harriet's life and words she spoke and wrote. We also watched a short video that the kids were very interested in. It was both informative and captured their attentions well. The museum is not very big, but I thought it well worth the effort to find in Cambridge. Their is no fee to enter, although you can give donations to help the museum expand.

This seems to be a work in progress but we wanted to visit it as part of the Harriet Tubman Trail. A DVD was shown, which made the visit worth while. We tried to visit all of the sites on the trail, but we gave up on a few. We did not have GPS and the directions given were not all clear, nor was the map always helpful. Nevertheless, the sites we did find were worth the struggle to find them. We listened to the accompanying CD for most of the drive, but it did not always seem to fit in with what we were looking at. It seems that just a few more sign posts, or even a better link between the printed guide and the CD would improve the experience! Nevertheless, we learned a lot.
Nice Informative place to stop

This small museum has a lot of information about the Harriet Tubman and the underground railroad. It's not fancy, but it's worth the 20-30 minutes it takes to go through it. The volunteers were happy to talk to us about any questions we had.
