Interesting little museum about the local history. Great displays about the manufacturing and waterway history of Seneca Falls. The greatest thing about this museum was the staff. When we visited they had a lot of brochures about the attractions in town and surrounding area. The woman we spoke to was very friendly and provided a vast amount of information about... More

We happen to wonder into the Museum and were delighted with the information and displays that were shown- we had fun trying to guess what some of the objects in the front window were used as. Our questions were answered with knowledge and enthusiasm- this whole area of New York is a hidden gem- with so much history it is... More

We did not know anything about the Erie Canal before our visit. We would love to take a trip on the Canal.

Our visit here was made even more enjoyable by the wonderful people of Seneca Falls who made us feel very welcome. It was a cold, rainy day so we had time to read and look at the many interesting exhibits. This is a great place to start your day in Seneca Falls.

I stopped at the Seneca Museum for tourist information and left an hour later! Seneca Falls has a unique place in America's growth. Their collection of antique irons was extensive from charcoal to heavy weights. Next, I came across the history of pumps from wooden to cast iron all made in Seneca Falls. If you ever spun the world globe... More

We were here in this area to see 'Bedford Falls' and stopped in to see this very informative museum. We really liked the displays and they were very well done. We also enjoyed the exhibits downstairs, simple tools used by the early settlers. There is not a fee but they ask for donations. The two ladies on duty this day... More
