Tales of escape

Find out more about how enslaved African people were helped on the road to freedom by the underground railroad and get hands on with some objects from our museum collection to discover more about these amazing escapes.

You can also have a go at our underground railroad text adventure game and make your own quilt code to take home.

This event is part of our Half term and Black History Month event series.
