We were in this area for a work trip with my small children. I had no idea how close we were to Seneca Falls. I am such a women's history nerd that my heart jumped when I realized how close we were and decided to check it out. I was hoping for some sort of monument or plaque, but they... More

My mom and I were on a trip to the Finger Lakes area and stopped at the Women's Rights National Historical Park on the way back to our hotel from another location. By the time we arrived we were only able to see the museum and do the tour of the church next door (we didn't get to the other... More

Take a romantic walk along the river in the evening or early morn. Some of the artwork is impressive. Next to it the bridge that inspired It's a Wonderful Life.

This is a wonderful historical site to bring your family (especially your daughters!) to. My husband and I went and we had a great time! The museum is informative, although smaller than I would have liked, or that the historical value of the site deserves. We toured the museum for about a half-hour (all you really need) and then took... More

When we arrived at the visitor's center, we were informed we were just in time to see a video and that following the video there would be a ranger at the desk to lead a tour. The video was very informative and had a nice mix of the historical viewpoint and history being told through a woman's letters to her... More

Visited the Stanton home and Womens' Hall of Fame years ago. This time found the Womens Rights National Park and was very impressed with the bronze statues of the people who were participants in the suffrage movement. An employee of the Seneca Falls Visitor Center directed us to the correct building. I had been looking for an outdoor park. The... More

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

Laurie, Thank you for your comments and review. You are absolutely correct we must update our film and exhibits to reflect current issues facing women today. We are working on funding to do just that. We hope the next time you visit you will see a difference. Regards. Ami Ghazala Superintendent More
