Guided 30-minute tour of the first floor of the 1866 Monroe House. Learn about Oberlin's founding as a Christian Perfectionist colony, women attending Oberlin college, African American education, abolition and the Underground Railroad, and more.

The Oberlin Origins Tour is offered every Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday at 10:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. (in replacement of the three-building Upstairs/Downstairs Tour) at the Oberlin Heritage Center. Admission: $3/adults; OHC members and college students with current IDs free; children (under 18) free when accompanied by adult.

***COVID-19 Information***
At this time, all tours will operate with the restricted capacity of nine (9) individuals from one (1) family or familiar group.

FACE COVERINGS ARE REQUIRED FOR VISITORS if they are physically able to do so. Disposable masks are available at the museum, as supplies last (donations are greatly appreciated to help offset costs of providing this service).

All visitors or household groups must complete the COVID-19 screening survey, including the written confirmation that: 1) they do not feel ill or exhibit common COVID-19 symptoms, and 2) they have not knowingly come into contact with an individual who tested positive for COVID-19 within the previous 14 days.

We also encourage visitors to take advantage of our hand sanitizing station and/or restroom for hand washing before and after the tour. We ask all museum patrons to follow social distance guidelines by standing 6 feet apart from individuals not in their immediate familial or familiar group. Visitors who do not follow our safety protocols may be refused service and asked to leave.
