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. 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. Upon completion participants take the Junior Ranger pledge with a park ranger and receive a souvenir patch and historical trading cards.

Tours
