We ask you to support Rokeby Museum through the Annual Fund each year. This drive is a crucial yearly fundraising campaign for the Museum that supports our mission to share the human experience of the Underground Railroad and the lives of four generations of the Robinson family.

Our 2023 season has come to an end, and we’d like to thank all who visited us this past season, enjoying our exhibits, programs, and events. We look forward to welcoming everyone back when we reopen in May. We have exciting things planned for 2024, so please check back frequently or sign up for program and event announcements.
This stunning exhibit chronicles the stories of Simon and Jesse, two fugitives from slavery who found shelter at Rokeby in the 1830s. Free & Safe traces their stories from slavery to freedom, introduces the abolitionist Robinsons who called Rokeby home, and explores the turbulent decades leading up to the Civil War.
The historic home tour is an intimate experience, during which visitors encounter the stories of all four generations of the Robinsons on their own terms — and in their own spaces. Guided tours of the historic home and outbuildings are available Friday–Monday, with tours at 11 am and 2 pm. Tours last approximately one hour.
