Trip Planner: USA / Ohio / Cincinnati / National Underground Railroad Freedom Center
National Underground Railroad Freedom Center explores the topics of slavery, inequality, and freedom, paying particular attention to the history of slavery in the United States and the role of the Underground Railroad. The center sits on the banks of the Ohio River, which thousands of slaves crossed as they fled the slave states of the South for the relative safety of Ohio during the 19th century. Take in the impressive collection of items, multimedia exhibits, and personal stories relating to slavery, the civil rights movement, and contemporary freedom struggles. You can go inside one of the premier artifacts here: a restored slave pen built in 1839. Note that the center has no snack or drink facilities, so bring your own if you are planning a long visit. Use our Cincinnati trip itinerary planner to add National Underground Railroad Freedom Center and other attractions to your Cincinnati vacation plans.

Incredible. A post and pictures doesn’t do this place justice. You have to go in person. There is SO much to learn from visiting this monumental place. I wish I had more time to go back. I would try to go from open to close to soak it all in and go back the next day to make sure you get everything from all the floors, exhibits and videos. You will learn things you didn’t learn about in school. Come educate yourself and soak in an amazing experience. They also have a great gift shop to check out as well!
BEAUTIFUL well thought out museum both inside & out! Lots to see with plenty of history of slavery, real life stories, pictures, murals, artifacts, underground railroad info, educational videos to watch, and a beautiful gift shop as well that has kids and adult books, jewelry, and other items too!!! This is a must visit while in Cincinnati. It's really eye-opening!!! $15 admission. Well worth it !!! 👍🤓✌️
