Freedom Conversation Tours

Daily Freedom Conversation Tours

Thursday through Saturday, 12:30 pm
 The Heritage Center’s signature tour is a bit different than other museum or historical site tours – we engage visitors in conversation about their life experiences to foster personal connections with the authentic stories of freedom seekers and abolitionists in Niagara Falls. This tour is included with the price of admission.
 
If planning to come with a group of between 10 or more people, group tour rates are available. Please email us.

Freedom Conversations are sponsored by a Humanities New York Action Grant.
