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

I did not visit all of the sites that are part of the WRNHP, so I'll focus on the my experience at the visitor center. There's a theater in which a 25 minute video is shown. When you enter, ask at the desk about it as the staff can control when the video is shown. We liked the video, because... More

Besides the great permanent exhibits regarding women's rights, they also participate in the town's Wonderful Life Festival. In Dec of 2014 they had a very nice special exhibit of some WW2 correspondence between Donna Reed and GIs over seas. (courtesy of her daughter Mary Owen). They are just a short walk to the west from The Gould Hotel.

As with most National Parks, the knowledgeable staff make learning about history a pleasant and valuable experience. This park has come a long way from me first visit in the mid 1980s. Interesting buildings and exhibits.

Be sure to watch the video. It provide excellent perspective. he museum is small and the park really is not a park… it's a location. If you are in the area, plan to stop in and take it in…. it will be a brief stop.

This was one of our "must see" attractions in Seneca Falls. The film was interesting, and the exhibits are fine, but in need of updating. Some had statistics that stop in 1990. That being said, this is a place commemorating important historic events.

We were a group of 4 women from the US and Canada who chose a reunion in an important place for women's history. We had difficulty finding the "park" (it isn't really a park) and the motel instructions were poor. We couldn't find a brochure in the motels rack of information and the staff really didn't direct us well. Although... More
