National Underground Railroad Freedom Center

The National Underground Railroad Freedom Center opened its doors in 2004 and serves as a museum for not only the underground railroad, but as a tribute to human rights and freedom. It is one of many museums in the country that are considered a museum of conscience. Not only does the museum have very interesting and thought provoking exhibits come through its doors but it also has some interesting artifacts on permanent display such as an original slave pen that was moved from its original location in Kentucky. Standing outside of the center is a section of the Berlin Wall on display as well as some great photos and works of art that all portray the fight for freedom.
