    Three friends and I took the day off today to visit the Freedom Center. We already hadtickets in hand and were looking forward to the experience. Unfortunately, when we got to Cincinnati, it was a traffic nightmare. We made our way to the underground parking garage of the Freedom Center only to be told that we were not allowed access because we did not have a pass. This was true for every parking lot from the stadium all the way up to Sixth Street and beyond. After searching for parking for more than two hours, we finally gave up and went home. We were told by the police officer working the gate at the parking garage that it was a mandate of the city that the Reds and Bengals be given priority and that the gates were automatically locked to anyone not possessing a pass. I think it is ridiculous that patrons to the Freedom Center are locked out of Freedom Center parking. It’s pathetic. A business should be able to accommodate its patrons without interference from the city. The next time you complain about funding maybe you should remind the city that you could do better if they would actually allow your patrons to visit. I like baseball, but guess what, I like education, too. I’m not displeased with the Freedom Center itself, because obviously I didn’t get to see it, but shame on a city that has such stupid policies. .

    Gives a fuller representation of slavery and the underground railroad. Very nice. Must see for anyone visiting Cinci.

    One of the best African-American history themed experiences in the country. Located on the Ohio river next to the Great American ballpark, where the Reds play. Just make a day of it!

    Wonderful place. Bright, open, windows all around so you have natural lighting and get great views of the city. The tour guides are friendly, knowledgeable, and always open to questions. Much to see and learn. Exhibits are set in chronological order from enslavement of African Americans to their emancipation to African Americans today to modern slavery. A wonderful place that everyone should visit.
