UNDERGROUND RAILROAD LIVING MUSEUM "FLIGHT TO FREEDOM TOUR"

The Underground Railroad Living Museum Flight to Freedom Tour is a "storytelling" re-enactment of the original Underground Railroad passage that operated between 1840 and 1863. Visitors will be shackled with wrist bands at the entrance of the tour and begin their journey by entering through the "Door of No Return" on Goree Island in Africa. As the journey begins, visitors transform into passengers on the Underground Railroad and are led to Freedom by a conductor. Passengers hide from bounty hunters, cross the Ohio "Deep" River and take retreat in a safe house which is owed by Abolitionist Levi Coffin in Indiana. Finally, passengers move to "Midnight" the code name for Detroit and take safe haven at the First Congregational Church of Detroit before moving to "Freedom."

UNDERGROUND RAILROAD LIVING MUSEUM "STATION HOUSE"

The Undergound Railroad Living Museum Station House exhibit is ADA accessible. Visitors will be greeted with a briefing and a video presentation in the Chapel. Visitors can also purchase merchandise at the UGRR Bookstore.
