Trip Advisor Worth visiting
Nov 15, 2014 by: Jean A from Whitstable, United Kingdom
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.

Trip Advisor 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.

Trip Advisor Waited for them to open.

They don't open on time. All the surrounding shops told us so and I'm standing outside waiting. No pride or respect. They should feel lucky to work/volunteer here on the behalf of such an important woman. Don't bother coming it won't be open.

Trip Advisor Great volunteer guide

Not a huge museum, but the volunteer on duty Saturday afternoon was very gracious, earnest and helpful. They have lots of literature and videos for kids and a terrific map and guide for the Harriet Tubman Underground Railroad Byway driving tour. It's now on our list of destinations for future trips.

Trip Advisor Nicely comprehensive

A nice museum, nestled into downtown Cambridge, has a fairly comprehensive history of Harriet Tubman. The video that was playing was a little too repetitive, with different historians saying the same thing over and over, but it is definitely worth a 30 minute drop-by when you are strolling through town.
