We took six upper-elementary school aged kids to the Harriet Tubman museum and were very impressed. There were many examples of things from Harriet's life and words she spoke and wrote. We also watched a short video that the kids were very interested in. It was both informative and captured their attentions well. The museum is not very big, but I thought it well worth the effort to find in Cambridge. Their is no fee to enter, although you can give donations to help the museum expand.

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.
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.
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.
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.
