Who knew that Seneca Falls was such a hot bed for Women's Rights? Wow. What a nice museum. A wonderful film on the women's rights movement and details on how/why it started there. The rangers were really great and informative. The bookstore didn't have a lot of choices, but I still managed to buy 3 books anyway!
We went to the museum the day after the government shutdown ended and all was just fine. The facility is spotless and the displays are really informative and well done.
I'd love to go again some day.

On your visit to Seneca Falls, New York make it a point to visit the Women's Rights National Park. Like all of the National Parks that I have visited across our country, this site presented an historical, educational, reverent perspective of the women and men at the forefront in improving the social status and awareness of women rights in the United States in the mid 1800's. Do not miss the 25 minute movie of the story Elizabeth Cady Stanton's role in the Women's Rights movement. Exhibits in the museum are well constructed and accompanied with concise historical information related to its theme. I believe that your visit will help you to get a good perspective of the social and political strides that women achieved in the 20th/21st century that were made possible by what happened at Seneca Falls in 1848.

When you think of the word "park", one probably thinks of grass, trees and space. This is not true of this national treasure. Housed in a historic building with a lovely walled grassy area and water wall, it really hits home as to how long women fought for equal rights in this country. Free entry to all with friendly staff. A great selection of books and other momentos for purchase. I picked up a great poster! The bronzes inside are fabulous. I thought I knew quite a bit about the Women's Rights Movement but found interesting and unknown facts to me during my visit. A must visit to see where we (woman) started yet still have more road to cover.

Inspiring to visit the Elizabeth Cady Stanton House -- don't miss it if you visit the Women's Rights National Historical Park! Wonderful and informative museum, though we wished they'd had more documents and artifacts. It was a thrill to visit the site of the first Women's Rights Convention next door to the museum.

The free museum is very well done with a lot of history, nice park rangers manning the desk and an excellent bookstore. We started off with a 14 minute movie which was interesting, but gave only a rendition of the start of the movement, not subsequent events and participants like Susan B. Anthony. It was worth the time to see.
