Our objective for the day was to go to the Seneca Falls Women' Rights Museum. The museum was very easy to find, right on the main street. I had heard of the place back in the 60's in high school. I was not disappointed, as what history there was. These women were so courageous, and stood up for themselves, and... More

The multi-story museum is beautiful and well laid out (and has an elevator!) This is a FREE exhibition which is awesome, especially if you are taking a crew or looking for something to do with little or no money. You can easily spend a day doing this if you go to all the tours and lectures, or you can do... More

Start with the short movie about the history of the women's movement which started in Seneca Falls, NY. Then roam the many exhibits in the two story museum to learn much, much more. Don't miss the church next door and the water wall outside the site. Best of all---it's all free!

The address 136 Fall Street is the visitor center which includes a short 20 minute video and some displays on both the first and second floor. For the other places, Stanton Home and Wesleyan Chapel, are guided tours with tour time both on NPS website and at visitor center. The Ranger will also give you address and map if you... More

Museum is a moving tribute to the brave women who began the work of getting women equal rights with men. Film worth seeing, although dated.

I stood at the pulpit that may have been used by Elizabeth Cady Stanton. I moved my hand slowly across where the Declaration of Sentiments would have laid and I felt a connectedness that is rare indeed. To realize how far we have come, how long it has taken and how much there is still to do was a unique... More

Stopped with my friend, as it's somewhere we've both wanted to go. It was interesting, we went to the Wesleyan chapel as well as the visitor center. Nicely arranged, and the park staff was friendly and helpful. Just wish there was a few more historical items, instead of just pictures, but we understand things get lost over time and people...

We found the Women's Rights National Historical Park interesting and informative. We did not know the history of the movement and the National Park Rangers were most knowledgeable.

This is definitely worth a visit for a feminist or any American History lover! The park contains a visitors center, the Wesleyan Chapel, Elizabeth Cady Stanton's house and the M'Clintock House. There are no visitor fees and the tours they provide are free as well. I explored the visitors center and took a tour of the Wesleyan Chapel. I particularly... More

This historical park is located right on the main street of Seneca Falls. There should be better signs (from farther distances out) leading you into Seneca Falls to this location and there is no parking lot for the museum...just street parking (free 2hr parking though... at least spot we found). There is a small free museum (2 floors) and gift... More
