10 Best Family Destinations for Learning Experiences

UndergroundRailroadMuseum

National Underground Railroad Freedom Center, Ohio


Built along the banks of the Ohio River in Cincinnati, this 158,000-square-foot museum illustrates the horrors of slavery and the fight for freedom. Three pavilions full of interactive, multi-media exhibits reflect on the history of American slavery. The main exhibit is the "Slave Pen," an authentic nineteenth-century wooden structure that was once used to hold more than 75 slaves in "storage." While it can be intense, viewing it is also an inspiring and enriching learning experience that teaches about courage and the human condition.
