      Historic Underground Railroad "Flight to Freedom" Tour

      CHECK BACK DAILY FOR ADDITIONAL TOUR DATES The Underground Railroad Living Museum Flight to Freedom Tour is a “storytelling” re-enactment of the 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 this 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 owned 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.” After your tour, stop by our bookstore and pick-up an Underground Railroad t-shirt, books about Harriet Tubman or the Underground Railroad, DVDs, coffee mugs, and much more! **PLEASE NOTE THAT NO TOURS ARE OFFERED ON SUNDAYS OR MONDAYS....THANK YOU** Youth: Ages 3-17 Adults: Ages 18-61 Seniors: Ages 62+ If you have any questions, or you are a group of 20 or more, please call (313) 831-4080. IN THE EVENT A TOUR IS CANCELLED, YOU WILL BE ISSUED A FULL REFUND.
