I agree with another reviewer that this history simply wasn't taught when I was young, so visiting this historical park was high on my list of places to see on my drive around the Finger Lakes area of New York. The movie and the video exhibits at the Visitors Center are a bit dated (think late 80s/early 90s hair and... More

We had a rainy day to spend in Seneca Falls with our two boys, ages 6 and 9. We had a wonderful time at the Woman's Right's National Park. The movie in the visitor's center was a great way to start our visit. We then went on tours of the Wesleyan Chapel and the Elizabeth Cady Stanton House lead by... More

Visiting this place was on our list while visiting Seneca Falls since both TripAdvisor and AAA recommended it. I was impressed that a museum devoted to everything about women's rights is a National Historic Park. I definitely learned something, as I believe a lot of this was not taught or emphasized when I was growing up. I especially enjoyed the... More

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
