Group tours

A visit to the Heritage Center is a great activity for your family reunion, senior center, summer camp, alumni event, or any other occasion. Groups can book  an on site tour with our Visitor Experience team, book a virtual group tour or visit or stop by and enjoy the museum at your own pace. We offer discounted group rates, are ADA accessible, and have easy bus parking. Due to staff shortages, we may not be able to accommodate your request but will try to find a day that works.

Freedom Conversation Tours

Tuesday through Sunday, 11:30 am and 2:00 pm

We’re excited to resume guided tours in person! 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.

Freedom Conversation tours are included with the price of admission. Please arrive before 12:30pm to join us on our signature tour! At this time  time our Freedom Conversation tours are in person only.

 

Freedom Conversations are sponsored by a NYSCA grant.
