“Equality! Everyone please go to Seneca Falls!!!”
Reviewed July 8, 2012

My first magazine subscription was Ms. That was a long time ago and I finally went to Seneca Falls and now I want to tell everyone to go there and bring your children and teach them well! It was heartening to see families there with parents showing their childen the history of women's rights and reform in the US. Start at the Visitors Center but do not neglect going down the road to the M'Clintock House in Waterloo. I had the most delightful young ranger and he gave me a guided tour that was informative and fascinating. I would like to thank whoever was responsible for salvaging the remains of the Wesleyan Chapel building and slowly bringing it back so the origins of this movement will never be forgotten!

“Women's Rights”
Reviewed June 6, 2012

The Women's Rights National Historical Park is a collection of several building that are connected to the first convention for Women's rights held in Seneca Falls, NY. The Park is amazing. The Visitor Center has a great display showing the transition of Women's rights all the way to the vote. There is also a church (where the convention actually took place), The Women's Hall of Fame, Seneca Falls Visitor Center, several other attractions, including Elizabeth Cady Stanton's home and a statue commemorating her first meeting with Susan B Anthony. Highly educational and well worth the visit. There is also a cell phone tour and a walking tour if you so desire.

“Women's History”
Reviewed May 20, 2012

One of the best collection of women's history ever. The women's outside water wall is outstanding. Makes us proud to be American's and the great contributions of our women.

“Informative displays, excellent ranger”
Reviewed May 1, 2012 via mobile

Spent about 2.5 hours here Saturday. Toured the visitor center with excellent exhibits detailing not just the 1848 convention in Seneca Falls, but the entire women's rights movement through suffrage and the 19th amendment up to today (there's still work to be done for true equality). Ranger Megan took us next door to the Wesleyan Church/meeting hall where the convention was held. Then we drove about 1 mile to the former hme of Elizabeth Cady Stanton. She did a nice job making an empty home in somewhat disrepair seem very interesting. Nice job!

The gift shop seemed a little small. I was surprised there weren't more "women's right" souvenirs available like replica pins (Uppity Women Unite!), inspiring mugs, women's studies books, etc.

Have your kids (boys and girls both) do the free junior ranger booklet.
