Welcome to the Harriet Tubman Museum and Educational Center

Harriet Tubman

"I had reasoned this out in my mind, there was one of two things I had a right to, liberty or death; if I could not have one, I would have the other."

At the Harriet Tubman Museum and Education Center, we invite you to "Find the Harriet in You"

It is our goal to preserve and celebrate the historical legacy of Harriet Tubman and other influential African Americans from Maryland's Eastern Shore. We invite you to visit our museum and experience the rich history and inspiring stories that shaped our nation. Through exhibits, films, educational programs, and engaging events, you'll gain a deeper understanding of the profound impact these individuals had on the fight for freedom and equality. We also offer historical tours. You do not have to book a tour in order to visit the museum, but we still highly recommend them! Come explore the journeys of courage and resilience that continue to inspire us today. 

We are located at 424 Race St. Cambridge, MD 21613

Our operating hours are:

Thursday & Friday 12pm to 3pm

Saturday 12pm to 4pm

Sunday by Appointment

On this website you can find out more about our mission, book unique tours of historic Cambridge, see our operating hours, view our photo and video gallery, get tickets to upcoming events, donate to help keep us running, and so much more! We hope to see you soon.
