National Underground Railroad Freedom Center 

Discover stories of courage, cooperation, and perseverance

Located on the banks of the Ohio River, which separated the slave states of the South from the free states of the North during one of the most heartbreaking chapters in our country’s history, this museum is a must-visit. The National Underground Railroad Freedom Center shares the stories from the era of the Underground Railroad and helps visitors understand the true meaning of inclusive freedom. 

An immersive educational experience for children and adults alike, the center offers a combination of permanent and traveling exhibits that utilize storytelling, film, artwork, hands-on activities, and more. Be sure to check the calendar for special events, including the opening of unique exhibits and discussions on advocating for the end of modern-day slavery.
