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.

The museum provides a thorough history of the local waterways and industry. The dioramas were great and the staff was extremely knowledgeable about their history.

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

Small storefront museum with some dated displays. The attendant was knowledgeable and friendly. I'm sure they are doing the best they can with funds available

The Canals of New York and the industry that followed are really something to consider. Today you see a sleepy town, but this region of the country had a lot to do with the rise of America as an industrial power and shouldn't be overlooked. Location is in a storefront. Admission is a suggested donation. This is a great exhibit... More

The museum is located in a storefront that overlooks the Erie Canal in the heart of Seneca Falls. We stumbled onto it while checking out the town on our way through to Albany, so it's not hard to miss.
