Basic Information

Amid bird calls, freshly plowed fields, and the hum of mosquitoes, the landscape that shaped Harriet Tubman’s life as an enslaved child, young woman, and freedom seeker thrives still in Dorchester, Talbot, and Caroline Counties, preserved within the Harriet Tubman Underground Railroad National Monument and National Historical Park.

The Harriet Tubman Underground Railroad Visitor Center houses permanent exhibits, a film, restrooms, a museum store, an information desk, and a research library, and it serves as the park’s primary visitor destination.

If you plan to take a walk in our legacy garden or to explore related sites, be prepared for hot weather and mosquitoes in the warm seasons.

For more basic information about the park, its facilities and offerings, and Harriet Tubman's local story, check out this booklet produced by our partners at the Maryland State Park Service.
