National Underground Railroad Freedom Center Reciprocal Membership Program
Museum Center Members receive free admission to the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center from May 1 through September 2, 2013! This is a special opportunity to discover more about the Civil War and Cincinnati's place on the Underground Railroad. Open now at the Freedom Center is a new exhibition of landscape photo collages titled Stephen Marc: Passage on the Underground Railroad. This exhibition celebrates the natural beauty of the landscape and spirit of freedom in the Underground Railroad.
Additionally, Freedom Center permanent exhibitions Escape! and Brothers of the Borderlands take visitors on an interactive journey presenting accounts of courage, perseverance and cooperation. Concentrating on the period between 1830 and 1865, this exhibit teaches the brave and clever actions of men and women who resisted slavery. An experiential theater film showcases the courage and cooperation of John Parker and Rev. John Rankin abolitionists in Ripley, OH, as they aid a woman risking all to flee slavery. These experiences are ideal for children 8 and older.
