A museum in Cincinnati is teaching year-round lessons in freedom.

Since 2004, The National Underground Railroad Freedom Center has been educating visitors in the history of slavery in America. Located along the Ohio River, the museum is located at a point where the Underground Railroad provided an escape to freedom for slaves.

The National Underground Railroad Freedom Center is bringing awareness to slavery that still exists with a current exhibition highlighting 21st century slavery. Today, more than 27 million people are slaves, including children and adults from America. Some have become victims of sex trafficking.

The National Underground Railroad Freedom Center hosts 180,000 visitors annually. For visitors interested in tracing their family tree, museum volunteers provide free assistance. For tickets or to inquire about ticket rates, visit the National Underground Railroad Freedom center website.
