What a fantastic facility and experience. My family and I stopped here for what we thought would be perhaps an hour and ended up being over three and a half! We took a guided tour by one of the rangers which led us to another tour. I would highly recommend taking the free tours. The rangers are so informed and... More

This site was the birthplace of the women's suffrage movement at the First Women's Rights Convention held on July 19 and 20, 1848 by leaders Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Eunice Newton Foote, Amy Post, Elizabeth M'Clintock, and Mary Ann M'Clintock and key supporters Lucretia Mott and Frederick Douglass. It should come as no surprise that many of the woman’s rights advocates... More

I was truly impressed by what is here. Make sure you do the guided tours. I brought my kids, 15 year old triplets: two boys, one girl. They were so surprised to find out that the civil rights movement had its root over a hundred years earlier with this amazing group of abolitionists and feminists who believed that all men,... More

Excellent museum, I only wish there was more to it. Be sure to take the tour with a park ranger and by all means go to the Stanton Home. The Ranger was well versed in the history of the women's movement and the time period involved. His presentation was fascinating. The film is well worth your time. Really enjoyed it.

Take your daughters and your sons so they can learn about a part of history that's forgotten by many. I thought I knew a lot about the early women's convention but really learned so much from the movie and exhibits. It's free!

Great museum. We started with the movie which was excellent. Good background on Caty Stanton and the women's movement. The museum is well done and goes through the years of women's suffrage to today.

Watch the short movie - it is very moving. Peruse the visitor center and take the free tours of the Wesleyan Chapel (next door) and the Elizabeth Stanton House. When you visit the Stanton House, walk down to the canal and check out the locks - there is a lot of history here!!!

Went with my wife, my mother (age 82) and two kids, a boy 11 and girl 9. It was just the right size for my kids, not overwhelmingly large, and with good interactive exhibits which my kids could understand, and to which we could relate other civil rights struggles. My only complaint was that a few of the interactive exhibits... More
