Very interesting archeology display

Take a moment to read the displace. I was surprised by the age of the flints and where some came from. You will also find out what a Yochum is.

Very nice museum/visitors center! The glass wall facing Seneca Rocks is fantastic and there is comfortable seating where you can contemplate the rocks and the nature surrounding it. This area is particularly comfortable in the hot summer where you can remain indoors and still enjoy the scenery. Just out the door there are scopes where you can (for a few... More

This center is EXCELLENT! I loved the rangers, who gave us lots of helpful information (after the fact, unfortunately, in the case of hiking off the back side of Seneca Rocks, hah!) about the area and places to go in the Seneca & Spruce Knob region. It was clean, open, fresh, and inviting. The large topographical map to help orient... More

Views of huge rocks, cliffs, mountains, saw 2 bear cubs in the woods, had a great lunch at a nearby, historic restaurant. To get to the observation area at Seneca rocks, you must go early in the day, & bring lots of fluids, & maybe protein bars, It's a rigorous climb UP the trail, & the rangers leave @ 4:30pm.... More

A surprisingly nice nature center considering it is more of a hiker/rock climber area than a tourist attraction. Nothing to add to the other descriptions about the center itself. The area has many very nice roads to explore, especially for motorcyclists, and there are several small local towns within 20-30 minutes drive that have good local restaurants to try.

We could see a hiker at the top! Great displays here. Very informative! This center wasn't around when I was a kid and we came to see Seneca Rocks; so, it was fun to stop in.
