    The museum portrays the struggle for freedom and its connection to the Underground Railroad in Cincinnati. The Center challenges its visitors to contemplate the meaning of freedom in their own lives.

    I thought I knew the weight of slavery until I went here...Now I know that I cannot begin to feel what slaves went through. Grateful for this National Center. Everyone should go at least once!

    Become a zombie yourself on October 20 and join the fun at the Cincinnati Zombie Walk. The walk begins downtown at the Freedom Center and is a free event for all ages.

    The exhibits tell a poignant part of our history. I am always amazed at those who have never gone. I guarantee it is worth seeing the exhibits. Don't like it, call me & get your money back.

    Much more than a museum, the Freedom Center reveals stories about freedom’s heroes and challenges guests to take steps to make a difference in their own lives and in their own world.

    Don't take the guided tour - the self tour has to be better. The guide talked about everything but the Underground Railroad.
