The Seneca Falls Convention fascinates me and this museum did a good job of putting it in context. Good for your teen who needs to get a reality check on the woman's movement and how far they needed to come at the time. The park rangers here were about the most knowledgeable that I've encountered. Worth a trip

If you are in the Fingerlakes region of New York, a visit to the Women’s Rights National Historic Park is a must! An important part of the beginning of the fight for women’s rights began in Seneca Falls in 1848. This is illustrated in all of the unique exhibits, artifacts, buildings, and videos at this site. The Visitors Center was... More

The museum is easily accessible, with free parking. The museum itself is free and the staff is fantastic. The exhibits are inspiring with pieces from every time period since the initial convention to the struggles still seen today. I happened to be there while there was a speaker presenting, and he was wonderful too! I've waited a long time to... More

There is lots to learn about the history of women's rights in America at this excellent stop in Seneca Falls. The bronze statues are awesome. Staff are friendly and helpful.

Saw the interview of Elizabeth Caty Stanton on Sunday. What an informative and entertaining presentation. A local public leader interviewed a woman who was a professor at a local college, dressed in period costume and armed with a fantastic command of Ms Stanton. Both actors were so good we were immersed in the repartee!

A link to the other women's rights museum. Not much to see but a national museum nonetheless. While here visit the canal across the street and then drive to one of the nearby locks.

We've driven by this place so many times on our way to various events and vacations and always talked about stopping. FINALLY we did and wow was it worth it. What a great display of the courage, grace and achievements of women since the beginning of time. It's laid out in such a way that is enjoyable and not preachy... More

I love this museum. The displays are beautiful and instructive. It is interactive and reaches out to young people and attempts to stimulate conversations of history and questions of why. It really made my teenage grand daughters think more about how much women are playing a role in our national and international progress. The only thing lacking was caring and... More
