Made a special trip to the Milton House Museum today because I was interested in the Underground Railroad but our tour guide was a novice and ruined the experience for us. The guide needs to be more educated and professional

I recently found out about the Milton house and wanted to visit to learn more about the Underground Railroad. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and engaged well with the children who were visiting. We saw the rooms that were used ( bedrooms, dinning room,...More

We visited this attraction with my parents and my kids and it was very enjoyable. I enjoyed hearing all the history of this place and area. Walking through the tunnel the slaves stayed in and moved through was a bit claustrophobic and creepy. The history...More

This is definitely well worth the visit if ever in this area! Very difficult to understand how we can be so cruel to each other...delighted to see we crossed racial lines to be HUMAN, COMPASSIONATE & CARING!

Tour was slightly over 1 hour. Very informative. Interesting history right here in WI. Miranda was a great tour guide. Just a mile away is a good restaurant, Milton Family Restaurant.

This hidden gem in Milton is a great place for couples or families to visit. The cost won't hurt you either ($4 for children, $6 for senior and students, and $8 for adults). You are given a 1 hour guided tour, which leaves every half...More

Milton seems to be a sleepy but charming little town. It's claim to fame is being a stop on the Underground Railroad. Tours are about an hour long and bargain-priced. The waiting area has a plethora of old-time pieces and story boards. Tabby was our...More

If passing thru Milton definitely take the hour tour and learn about the history of Milton in the 1850's. Some great historical pieces on display. We would have liked to hear even more about the underground railroad, however still worth the visit.
