Not only are you in the very spot where meetings were held that inspired the revolution of equal rights for women, you are down the road from the home of Elizabeth Cady Stanton herself and a quick 40 minute drive from the home of Susan B Anthony. This small museum has the best employees who delight in the history themselves!... More

A lot of history is packed into one area. Great photos and displays. The displays in the main building would be better if there was a more chronological order to them - a little difficult to keep the events in order.

The life size statues, the pictures and the exhibits were fascinating. The re-enactor who portrayed Elizabeth Cady was well-informed, stayed in character and brought the heroine to life. Do not miss the second floor, which is handicap accessible. Learn about the actress Donna Reed's role and view letters from soldiers written to her during WWII generously given to the museum...

The photos that are blown up are the most interesting part of the exhibit. The staff was warm and welcoming. We enjoyed the visit here even though we stayed less than an hour. As it is a free exhibit we were glad to have stopped in to visit.

We happened to be passing through Seneca Falls and stopped by to have a look without knowing a lot about the issue. We were very impressed with the knowledge of the staff (or volunteers) and learned a lot about the Women's Rights movement and some of the key players involved. We found the museum very informative and purchased some literature... More

Very interesting. A lot of history. Women really struggled to be where they are today. Not a guy thing. Lol.

As with any National Park Service attraction I've ever been to, Women's Rights is well worth the visit. The staff are right there ready to answer questions, the displays and videos are very informative.

While on an upstate road trip, we drove by the sign indicating Seneca Falls historic park. While it wasn't on our itinerary I decided to pull off and my group was so glad. We parked across the street from the visitor center and walked across. There is a water wall memorial next to the chapel. From there we entered the... More

So happy to have finally made it to the Women's Rights National Historic Park, suggested by my son as we drove along Cayuga Lake - I have wanted to get here for years, and it was a perfect visit. GREAT museum with many many exhibits explaining the fight for suffrage and equality. My sons were interested as well, and happy... More

It was Veteran's Day so we were unable to take a tour or browse the store. But we were still pleased to check out the park with the Declaration of Sentiments monument and see the corner with the historical marker noting the convention site. Check the website if you go soon because the Elizabeth Cady Stanton house is closed for... More
