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

    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.

    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.
