“Deep dive into a remarkable brave woman”

Harriet Tubman Home
Ranked #3 of 24 things to do in Auburn

Attraction details
Reviewed 7 November 2013

I visited on a Thursday afternoon with three women friends. We had an enthusiastic tour guide who took us through the house and then spent a lot of time in the visitor center going through the timeline with us. You gain a very good understanding of her life and works and an appreciation for her courage. There is a lot of reading in the visitor center but it is well done and very educational. She is an inspiring figure in American history. I hope she gets her due, she did so much for slaves and all of humanity.

We visited on a rainy Thursday and had the place to ourselves. You definitely want to have the tour, which start on the hour. Without the tour, it is just a bunch of pictures and text at the visitor center, and you don't get to see the house. Our host really put a human face on Harriet's life. I had always known that Harriet Tubman was a special individual, but until today I never really knew why. TODAY I DO !

Having read about her as a child and being inspired by her courage and determination (never mind the survival skills of traveling hundreds of miles of wilderness repeatedly while avoiding capture) I enjoyed the story of her life and how it fit into the events of the times. Nice personal tour for $5.

The Harriet Tubman House in Auburn, NY is a wonderful place to learn so much about this strong and brave women who was a true hero. The House and visitor center are very well done and the grounds are very picturesque. You will learn how truly brave this American icon was and this definitely a place to visit for any American

Wish we'd gotten there earlier, we just missed the last tour, which was at 3pm. They let us walk around the visitor center, though- which gave us a lot of interesting background on her life. In the ads, though, there's no mention of the cost of the tour, which was $5. per adult. Not a big deal, but would have been good to know. Looks like a beautiful home on the outside.
