We were too late to go inside the museum, but the outside exhibits were amazing and impressive. What a lovely setting along the waterway in the historic district. It was a magical evening, and the fountain with the words of the declaration of right was very moving.

Wonderful small museum with well thought out exhibits and information. Well informed and helpful museum staff that did a great job explaining the history . Visiting the church where the women's rights struggle was launched in 1848 and the house where Elizabeth Cady Stanton lived and raised her children brings the history 'alive'. Reflecting on this history we are reminded that the struggles for women's rights including attaining the right to vote for all of our citizens are still being waged in some areas of the US. In August rangers will lead kyak trips on the Erie Canal to one of the locks near the Stanton's house. The house is located about a mile from the museum which takes about 20 minutes to walk. The walk is fun through the downtown and across a bridge that spans the Erie Canal. A recommended stop on any visit to upstate New York.

This is the kind of small NPS site where you don't know what to expect but as usual with NPS sites, you come out empressed.
They do a great job explaining the women's fight through history for acceptance, respect and rights. The museum and exibits are very very interesting.
Also, this site in Seneca Falls as an important historic meaning.
After visiting the museum and seeing the exibits, I recommend you walk to the house of Elisabeth Cady Stanton. It is a nice short walk through the streets of Seneca Falls.
Bring the whole family, especially if you have daughters... it puts a lot of things in perspective.
You will spend here around a couple hours.

We had no idea of how important Seneca Falls was in the suffrage and women's right movements. It's a lovely museum with lots of easy to understand displays of information. This museum is a gem in the National Historic Parks. Attached to it is the church where many of the women's rallies took place. One leaves with the sense that women have been very important to freedom and rights for everyone in the U.S. The town of Seneca Falls is quite lovely and interesting in and of itself.
