A stop at this museum was well worth the investment of time for us. It explains why you won't find any waterfalls in Seneca Falls. Very detailed exhibits explore the industry and history of the Erie Canal. Volunteers and staff were very friendly.

I am not a big fan of museums of any type but if you know anything about the Finger Lakes and Canal system, this museum was informative about Seneca Falls and its rich waterway history

Situated on the Erie Canal this three floor local museum offers a history lesson about the very important events in state and local history. There is information on the founding and growth of the town as well as the woman's rights movement.
