Harriet Tubman Underground Railroad State Park
The Harriet Tubman Underground Railroad Visitor Center immerses visitors in Tubman’s world through informative, evocative and emotive exhibits. The displays show how the landscape of the Choptank River region shaped her early years and the importance of her faith, family and community. The exhibits also feature information about Tubman’s life beginning with her childhood in Maryland, her emancipation from slavery, her time as a conductor on the Underground Railroad and her continuous advocacy for justice.
The 15,000 square-foot LEED silver rated center includes state-of-the-art green elements including: a green roof, recycled materials, energy efficient lighting and water conservation devices. A museum store rounds out the visitor experience.
