  • Guided tour of museum by knowledgeable docent really helped to bring the history of the Underground Railroad to life. Though the Museum is rather small, each portion is so impactful it made for a very rich and thought provoking learning experience. Certainly a museum for locals and tourists alike to visit to understand the deep history of the Niagara Falls area beyond the casinos and other tourist attractions.
