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.

A nice museum, nestled into downtown Cambridge, has a fairly comprehensive history of Harriet Tubman. The video that was playing was a little too repetitive, with different historians saying the same thing over and over, but it is definitely worth a 30 minute drop-by when you are strolling through town.

Harriet Tubman was the most famous "conductor" on the Underground Railroad, the name given to the process of moving escaped slaves northward during the nineteenth century. This museum is very small but quite interesting. The building located in downtown Cambridge, MD is a bit difficult to find but worth the search. In addition to the permanent walls of displays, a video is available upon request and well worth viewing.
