Daily Freedom Conversation Tours

Tuesday - Saturday, 11:30AM and 2:00PM

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.

Freedom Conversation tours are offered Tuesday through Saturday, 11:30AM and 2:00PM. Tours are limited to 20 people and can be registered for on-site. We also offer these tours for groups and can extend them into longer programs that help foster empathy on teams, between collaborators, or even in families.

Tours last about an hour and are free with regular admission tickets.
