Freedom Conversation Tours are the Heritage Center’s signature program. Rooted in stories of the Underground Railroad in Niagara Falls, these tours spark conversation and offer a space to consider the relationship between race, human rights, and freedom. They are led by trained interpretive specialists and are a way to foster empathy, increase knowledge, and encourage action.
The goal of every tour aligns with the Heritage Center’s mission to reveal authentic stories of Underground Railroad freedom seekers and abolitionists in Niagara Falls that inspire visitors to recognize modern injustices that stem from slavery and take action toward an equitable society. The new Virtual Tour for the public usually last 60-90 minutes depending on engagement.
