  • The Slave Haven/ Burkle Estate Museum is a must stop if you are visiting Memphis! It was an eye opening experience that illustrated just how innovative, courageous and determined African Americans...

  • I would recommend this tour to anyone and everyone. It made us emotional but I think that just means they did it right. Tour is about an hour and no pics allowed inside.

  • This little museum is well worth a visit. This home was part of the underground railroad. It is such an important part of our nation's history. We really enjoyed learning some of the details about how people escaped slavery. It is horrible how these people were treated. Fortunately, there were people who were willing to step up and help.
  • Absolutely loved this Museum!! So many historical artifacts. I experienced a surreal feeling just being on these hallowed grounds where our ancestors bound for freedom once stood. I highly recommend this experience to all!!
