National Underground Railroad Freedom Center#5 in Best Things To Do in Cincinnati
This museum, which opened in 2004, sits along the banks of the Ohio River. And it's a very fitting location since thousands of slaves actually crossed the river from Kentucky into Cincinnati when following the Underground Railroad. Today, the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center tells the story of slavery in America with several exhibits, giving a broad sweep of three centuries of history and a more detailed look at the Civil War era. The center also works to educate visitors on the slavery that continues to plague the world.
One TripAdvisor user had high praise for the center: "Such a fantastic, educational museum chronicling the Underground Railroad's history. The staff is friendly, the facility is clean, parking is affordable and accessible."
You'll find the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center located on Freedom Way near the Great American Ball Park. The center is open Tuesday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Adult admission costs $12; tickets for children ages 3 to 12 are $8; and entry for seniors is $10. For more information, visit the center's website.
