Seasons Greetings from #MyNURFC

Whether you’re staying home or traveling this month, we at the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center wish you and yours a fun and safe holiday season. We hope you’ll consider stopping by with your loved ones this month for a meaningful museum experience.

Holiday Hours

The National Underground Railroad Freedom Center is closed on December 25. We are also closed on Mondays, October-February.

Throughout the month of December, visitors can experience Mandela: The Journey to Ubuntu, sponsored by Thomas R. Schiff, John and Francie Pepper, Macy’s, and The John A. Schroth Family Charitable Trust, PNC Bank, Trustee. The exhibition commemorates the life and legacy of former South African President Nelson Mandela through photographs by documentary photographer Matthew Willman as he revisited many of the locations that played an important role in South Africa’s route to racial equality and Mandela’s personal fight for freedom. Admission for Mandela: The Journey to Ubuntu is $10 per person, $5 for members. Members also receive free admission to the exhibition on Sundays.

Visitors can also immerse themselves in our engaging permanent exhibits such as The Rosa Parks Experience – via a virtual reality headset – and the Open Your Mind: Understanding Implicit Bias Learning Lab.

Also, don't forget to mark your calendar for MLK Day 2019 on Monday, January 21, 2019. The museum will offer guests several special programs for the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday in addition to free general admission.
