Hidden history

Very informative site dedicated to early meetings in the women's rights movement. A worthwhile stop. Park includes 19th century meeting site and homes of participants.

Lovely museum, free of charge. Excellent presentation of the history. Took the tour of church where the 1st conference was held. it had a major impact on the march to womens rights. It was the right time to be there since the supreme court has upheld the rights of the gay lesbian community that week.

I spent the day in Seneca Falls, NY. I took a boat ride that was very enjoyable. Then, went to see all of the history of women who fought for their rights. The museum took me 2 hours. They is so much history to read and see. I took a walk across the bridge that is know, as the bridge... More

As we continue to struggle with human rights issues now, it is humbling to get a glimpse into the lives of the courageous women who took on women's suffrage in the 1800's. The National Park Service always does a great job of restoring historical sites and presenting information. It appears that this site is not heavily visited and is still... More

I am so incredibly lucky. Once I have reached the ripe old age of 16, I was able to work to save up funds for a CD player. Once I had my delightful daughter, I had the option of turning away from her father when it proved that he was just not a good fit in my world nor was... More

This museum/visitors center is very well done with an informative film. Emily, the guide in the center, is very knowlable and friendly, which made our visit even more special.

An educational presentation of women and their fight for rights. Much to read, as you move along at your own pace. Not a museum for very young children. Located on the Main Street and close to restaurants(we ate at a nice Chinese Restaurant there) and shops. Worth a stop if you're passing through. We took about an hour there. Then... More

Initially, I thought I was going to be bored by this park just based on the title. However, I ended up finding it very interesting and I learned a lot about the plight of women in seeking equality with men. I also learned a bit about how Seneca Falls, NY got picked for the site of the park and how... More
