there are several buildings to visit to make your trip more enjoyable. The park rangers are available to run tours and answer questions. Much to see and learn about the rights of women and these inspirational people who made it possible.

The museum offers a brief history of the Women's Rights movement. The staff were friendly and the location of the museum was easy to find. I brought my teenagers to learn about the women's suffrage movement and we were a little disappointed. The museum is small, with a small selection of souvenirs. The movie touches on important issues, however it... More

This was an eye-opening stop. The museum is lovely with a staff who truly care about your experience of the exhibits and park. Who knew such giant steps were the result of such tiny women! And if you are an architecture buff, the building where the first women's rights convention was held has been restored in an extremely sympathetic manner... More

In this year that has seen the first nomination by a major party of a woman presidential candidate, I was anxious to make this stop during our Finger Lakes vacation. I'm glad we made the stop. It is stunning to me that when my mother was born, women couldn't even vote, much less hold elective office. There was so much... More

This tiny national park, contained mostly indoors, traces the beginning of the women's suffrage (voting rights) movement in the US. It started in Seneca falls and spread throughout the country. The exhibits deal with the history from about 1850 through 1900, but contain little about the legislative efforts to obtain passage of the 19th amendment. Plan to spend about an... More

We had high hopes for this park knowing the quality of national park service sites and fresh off a visit to the Susan B. Anthony house in Rochester. The orientation film is long, dated and not overly specific to the site itself. The tours of the chapel and Stanton home were brief and somewhat repetitive since the same ranger led... More

The Park Ranger knew a lot about the people and places and gave a great tour. The sites are a little spread out but worth travelling to see each one. The homes were very well preserved.

It's crazy to think that women have had the right to vote for less than a century in this country. Visiting this National Parks Site is a good way to remember that it took a lot of time, dedication and sacrifice to get the right to vote. It is worth a visit if you have an hour or two. I... More

This museum marks the significance of the women's suffrage movement and is an important part of US history. It's a pleasure to visit this museum. It's part of the national parks museum and it is free. The rangers are very helpful. There is a documentary outlining the movement. The statues of the activists are very well done and when you...
