I live in Seneca Falls and having this park "right in my backyard" is really convenient. It's very well laid out and something everyone should have the experience of seeing once!

The Women's Rights National Historical Park is actually considered a national park, and you can stamp your National Parks Passport here! As small as it is, the importance of this location is high! On this corner, at they Wesleyan Chapel, the first Women's Rights Convention was held. I think it is important to see and experience this place with monumental... More

If you are in to the history of womens' rights, this is THE place to visit then....small, two floors of good exhibits; a nice movie to start...you can go next door to the wesleyn chapal; then down a few miles to see Elizabeth Cady Stanton's home; a ranger is there also...nice gifts...nice programs for students...

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.
