This is not a WOW national park, but its message is important. It doesn't take long to visit both the visitor center and the church next door. Girls of this generation need to know about the fight for women's rights (as do boys!). It is free!

We went to Seneca Falls to connect with the history of the women's movement, and we're sorry to say we were disappointed. The outside fountain -- with the Declaration of Sentiments written under the flowing water -- was very moving. But once inside the museum (and beware: the place is closed on Mondays and Tuesdays), we were underwhelmed. The opening... More

The National Park Service at Women's Rights National Historical park agrees and thanks you for your comments. There are numerous updates needed at the visitor center including current issues facing women today. With tight budgets we are working with the private and public sector to update exhibits and furnish the homes of the organizers. We hope to exceed your expectations... More

I am not a museum person at all, but I loved my entire visit here. The Rangers who guided the tours were so knowledgable and told the history through storytelling that was suitable for all ages. Go to the visitor center first and be sure to watch the short movie. Pick and choose what you want to see depending on... More

Seeing the 25-minute film in the first-floor theater really helps to understand the beginnings of the Women's Rights Movement and sets the stage for the rest of the museum. The two-story museum is easily done in an hour (besides the film), but you could spend a couple of hours there if you read everything. One of the few interactive stations... More

Only because a friend had visited Seneca Falls did we find out there was a National Historic Park about Women. We decided on a road trip to check it out and were definitely rewarded with this hidden gem. In one small building which is the chapel where the first assembly took place, they describe the conference and give an orientation.... More

While in the Wesleyan Chapel, the park ranger Abby described the events of the convention so that when I closed my eyes, I could almost imagine being there. It was moving. Outside, the waterfall over the words of the Declaration of Sentiments were soothing, and the visitors center was full of information. Abby then led a most informative walking tour... More

The exhibits are very informative and inspiring. Loved visiting the exact location of such historically significant events. No admission fee, which was nice. I could have spent more time there. Seneca Falls is clearly very proud of Elizabeth Cady Stanton. The monument outside is quite impressive : the Declaration of Sentiments etched in the wall of the flat panel is... More

The visitors center is right downtown, and the actual historic building is next door. The visitors center has the whole second floor devoted to the original women's rights convention, though the exhibits were either very good or very bad.

So many of the rights (such as the right to vote) that we take for granted as women today was hard won for us by these courageous women (and some of their husbands). Though I knew much of this history there were many more details of which I was unaware. Different aspects of women's struggles for their rights are presented... More

If you are in the Finger Lakes region, a visit here is definitely worthwhile. As others have written, one can't help but come away with a sense of awe and inspiration from the work of Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Susan B. Anthony and the 300 or so other women who participated in the historic 1848 meeting that produced the Declaration of... More
