Bonus Activity: Harriet Tubman Underground Railroad Junior Rangers
Understanding and appreciating our history is important for reflecting upon ourselves in the present day. We aim to teach Junior Rangers about Harriet Tubman's life and legacy, and the importance of the Underground Railroad. Harriet Tubman Underground Railroad State Park offers two different Junior Ranger activities: one that focuses on Harriet Tubman’s life and legacy and the second on the art and music found in the Visitor Center.

The Original Junior Ranger Activity: Start your experience by requesting a self-guided activity book at the Visitor Services desk. Use the exhibits and your personal experiences to complete the booklet and build a personal connection to Harriet Tubman and the Underground Railroad. The information in the back is neither sanitized nor watered down for our audience. The Original Junior Rangers is intended to help our younger guests learn the information in the exhibit hall. Though its intended audience is primarily that of children, teenagers and adults have completed our award-winning booklet with zeal and passion. The activity book takes you throughout the exhibit space and has you answer questions using the knowledge you gain on your journey.
Sights and Sounds of Freedom Junior Ranger Activity: Start your experience by requesting a self-guided activity book at the Visitor Services desk. With this activity booklet, the focus is shifting to the sights and sounds that influenced the creation of the park and the Visitor Center. Art and music tell much of Harriet’s legacy in a way that simple words have trouble encapsulating. The Sights and Sounds of Freedom Junior Ranger Activity has guests focus on the many artistic aspects of the Visitor Center and encourages them to open themselves up and feel the energy of the park. Because of the abstract nature of art and music, this activity booklet is intended for a more mature audience. The booklet will guide guests throughout the exhibit hall, and will challenge them to interpret the exhibit in their own way.
