I think that it's a sad reflection of our society that a museum highlighting the important contributions of women even needs to exist. In a perfect world, men and women would receive equal treatment and recognition, and thus there would be no need to build a museum to underscore one gender's accomplishments. But we don't live in that world, and... More

Many famous women, all celebrated in one spot. Very moving to read all about the famous women spotlighted in this Hall of fame, read about many I knew and many I didn't, free also!

The nominal admission fee is well worth it, to have access to the information presented on the walls of this museum. Yes, it will be much better when they move to their new location and can spruce up the presentations. But, even "as is" I thoroughly enjoyed the time I spent reading about all these talented, strong women. I spent... More

I think this attraction will be better once it moves to its new location in the mill across the canal, where there is more room for exhibits. As it is now, the exhibits consist of framed pictures and three to four paragraph descriptions of the honorees. Interesting and I learned a few things, but too much reading for a beautiful... More

Like another reviewer I expected there to be more artifacts and exhibits. Instead you are presented with a few rooms of several large framed pictures/biographical sketches of the women who have been inducted into the Hall of Fame. Upon seeing this I definitely hesitated before paying admission, but ultimately decided to go ahead with the visit. I enjoyed reading about... More

I lived in Seneca Falls for a while, and never visited, after I moved away, I resolved to visit and was NOT disappointed. I learned more about local history, and more about ancestors that were a part of the Women's Rights Movement, and signers of the Declaration of Sentiments.

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.
