  • This is a very impressive museum. As a museum professional this hits it out of the ballpark. The film was wonderful. The exhibits were first rate. There was braille on each panel as well as 3D tactile miniatures so a child or blind person could feel what was being discussed. I assume there were no dress up clothes or more kid friendly items because of covid but the exhibits were first rate. The museum shop and bathrooms were very nicely done. The location was a little odd though. The site had no real significance to the Tubman story other than slaves hid out in the area. It was more of a place to build a nice museum in the middle of no where rather than on a primary resource. I can only assume it was free land since it is on the wildlife refuge and from there you go follow Harriet's trail instead of something actually happened here. GPS did not work correctly to get us the visitor center. Follow the signs. GPS told us we were there when we were in the middle of no where. It is worth a trip.
  • I love history, so this small museum was lovely. Spent 60 minutes visiting. You always learn and something always stays with you. A great place to visit with my 8 y/o daughter & friend. I did wish there was a trail on the property to enjoy some fresh air and movement. There is large area to read about Harriet Tubman outside, just not any trails. There are a couple trails nearby. We partially walked 1 of them, it was quite wet and muddy so we turned around. We also checked out the Brodess Farm site. Beautiful open land.
