I thought the Hall of Fame would contain more artifacts and exhibits, but it's mostly just a collection of framed portraits and a few paragraphs describing each woman and her contributions to American history and culture. You'd get essentially the same experience locating the list of honorees online, Googling them one by one, and reading about them on Wikipedia that... More

This place was really inspiring. I enjoyed walking around and reading about the different women and their many and varied achievements. My only thought would be that it's a lot of reading. Unless you have a very long attention span it would be difficult to read everything. I don't think that this is a bad thing in itself, as it... More

Small facility but worth a visit. (They are moving to a newer bigger facility next year.) Entire self-tour is just reading "plaques" about those women inducted - but we spent over 1 hour there and only could read about a small portion of the plaques. Was very interesting and learned a lot! (Both husbands and wives felt this way.)

This is run by the National Parks Service. We did not know that the women's rights movement started in Seneca Falls in 1848. This is a must see exhibit by young and old alike.

I loved wandering through and reading the accomplishments of the various women who were honored here. I was surprised (and saddened) by just how often I had heard of the accomplishment or breakthrough, but had never heard anything about the woman who was responsible for it! It definitely needs more space! I'm told they have a great deal of memorabilia,... More

I look forward to when the Hall can move into the Mill across the canal and have the proper space to showcase all the women who have been inducted.

This museum pays homage to women hall of famers. It's worth visiting. It will be better when they move to a larger venue and get to display memorabilia. Right now, it's plaques explaining what the person did. These are excellent, but adding memorabilia will make the exhibits more interesting. There is a small admission fee of $3.00.

The attraction was not that easy to find, but worth a stop if you are in the area. They are going to move within Seneca Falls to a larger place which would allow them to display more memorabilia. Right now it is mostly copies of the plaques and the brief biography of the woman. It is arranged by category of... More

A great tribute to the women who have contributed so much to our country. It was exciting to see the names and faces with which you were familiar, as well as women who were unfamiliar but whose contributions were very significant.

This site provides a lot of interesting information about the history of the Women's movement. The Park Rangers were helpful and informative.
