Now I am not a history buff, and I know very little about the women's rights movement. BUT, I found this historical park to be extremely informative, and I very much enjoyed walking "the wall" that contained the manuscript of the essay written by leaders of the women's rights movement. The words rang true. I learned to appreciate that history... More

Great place to visit. Lots of history and great for the whole family. Really was enjoyable and the people were friendly. I learned a lot from visiting this site.

I found it confusing trying to locate the Elizabeth Cady Stanton House, Wesleyan Chapel and the Women's Rights National Historical Park and Museum. The answer is, they are all part of the National Park Service Historical Site. The Visitor Center and Museum has a 30 minute movie and museum exhibits. The park and Wesleyan Chapel are next door. You have... More

My daughter just turned 18 and is so excited to be of voting age. This museum is a fitting tribute to all the women who worked so hard to win that right for us. The water wall with the Declaration of Sentiments and names of all who signed it is especially moving. The sculptures of the movers and shakers are... More

We enjoyed a brief visit to the museum, but were surprised at its limited coverage of suffrage history - given that its called a National Park. Not worth a special trip, but do visit if you are passing by.

NOTE: Google Maps and Waze will take you to the WRONG location. Plug the specific address in instead: 136 Fall St., Seneca Falls. Definitely a little dated, but a lovely museum with a powerful message. Well-staffed with extremely helpful rangers - I wasn't able to time my visit with one of their tours, but would recommend doing so if you... More

This little museum is well worth seeing. Not too far off the NY State Thruway. It is rather small and a little dated but I liked the way it was organized around the "Declaration of Sentiments". It helped to see the movie before hand but again ithe movie is old and the interaction between the children in the film was... More

This site in Seneca Falls, NY is a National Park. So much history in the charming village of Seneca Falls! The museum will be moving into a larger, riverside, old brick building soon. Abolition AND women's rights found support in this Central NY/beautiful Finger Lakes area. Wineries, natural beauty, Mennonite history plus very friendly folk make this special experience. Sue...

We didn't have much time to stay here but we enjoyed our stop. This is a fee free site which is always nice. It is only a few minutes off the interstate. In the main visitors center, they show a film and have exhibits upstairs. You can also check out some of the nearby buildings (the chapel and a few... More

This historic site was the main reason we vacationed in the Finger Lakes. We arrived there early at 9 am and went through the visitor center (exhibits were very well done and the building was in scale with the streetscape/town). Despite 4-6 rangers standing around, they only had the two buildings, the Chapel and the Stanton House open at 10:30... More
