Harriet Tubman Underground Railroad National Historical Park is a 480-acre (190 ha) National Park Service unit in the U.S. state of Maryland. It commemorates the life of former enslaved Harriet Tubman, who became an activist in the Underground Railroad prior to the American Civil War. The Harriet Tubman Underground Railroad National Monument was created by President Barack Obama under the Antiquities Act on March 25, 2013. The portion of the monument administered by the National Park Service was later designated a National Historical Park in 2014, and the remainder is managed by the Fish and Wildlife Service as part of Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge.

  • What an awesome place! I was there tonight for the premier of the new film for visitors and if you havent been yet, you NEED to go and take your kids or your friends' kids! Harriet's story needed to be told like this film tells it for so long. She was so much more than just a conductor on the Underground Railroad! And the setting of this museum is just beautiful! Make a special trip, or include it on your trip to the beaches, but whatever you do, go and visit this museum which is now so enhanced by the film about Harriet's life!
  • A small but well thought out and nicely laid out National Park. It has a beautiful/tranquil setting There are a few interactive exhibits (great for kiddos!), directions and maps for a self-guided tour on HT's trail, a bike/walking trail, a food pavilion, and a very nice souvenir shop. An open and inviting space for all. Highly recommended!
