Rochester's Underground Railroad: Immersion Experience

Docent Tour

Follow the North Star on a journey from slavery, to the doors of abolitionists, and on to freedom during this Underground Railroad Immersion Experience in our Flight to Freedom exhibition. This tour focuses on the decisions and risks taken along the way. The experience highlights famous abolitionists who called Rochester home and discusses the key people, events that precipitated the Civil War, and our city’s position during this pivotal period of American history. Interactive exhibit components and a role-playing activity in the “Doors to Rochester” engage students from start to finish. *Tour is differentiated by Grade Levels
