Interesting exhibits and a wonderful gift shop that features local artists. Wall Street is a charming area and local owner really works hard to represent women's issues and provide educational experiences for all ages.

There is the museum; but my favorite is the gift shop; they just have so many unique things; I always find something that is handmade and nice for a gift. or for a home decoration. Love it that the all fair trade or locally made.
