Journey to Freedom


The African American Museum and Wickiup Hill invite you to join us for  “Journey to Freedom,” a simulated outdoor Underground Railroad experience, Saturday October 1st, 2016. Prepare to be transported back in time to experience perils and triumphs of their escape from slavery.

On this journey, you will learn to navigate using the stars and build a fire from abolitionists “conductors.” You will hide from slave catchers in the Iowa terrain and encounter farmers, and bounty hunters while trying to navigate their way to Canada. Who can you trust? Will you make it to freedom? Or will you be captured and sent back into slavery?

If you are interested in participating in our event, please fill out our Registration Form.
