Schools and educational tours

At Uncle Tom’s Cabin Historic Site, we offer a variety of interactive, exciting and thought-provoking educational programs for students. Designed in consultation with Ontario curriculum guidelines, our programs aid students in their understanding of the Underground Railroad movement. With a focus on Josiah Henson’s story, students will learn about the many contributions of peoples of African descent to Canadian culture and society. School groups receive an educational and interactive tour of Uncle Tom’s Cabin Historic Site at a discounted rate. Please allow two hours for a complete tour. (See Admissions for more information.) Depending on the class size, chaperones can tour the site for free with the students. Please inquire at time of booking.
