This was an eye-opening stop. The museum is lovely with a staff who truly care about your experience of the exhibits and park. Who knew such giant steps were the result of such tiny women! And if you are an architecture buff, the building where the first women's rights convention was held has been restored in an extremely sympathetic manner... More

In this year that has seen the first nomination by a major party of a woman presidential candidate, I was anxious to make this stop during our Finger Lakes vacation. I'm glad we made the stop. It is stunning to me that when my mother was born, women couldn't even vote, much less hold elective office. There was so much... More

This tiny national park, contained mostly indoors, traces the beginning of the women's suffrage (voting rights) movement in the US. It started in Seneca falls and spread throughout the country. The exhibits deal with the history from about 1850 through 1900, but contain little about the legislative efforts to obtain passage of the 19th amendment. Plan to spend about an... More

We had high hopes for this park knowing the quality of national park service sites and fresh off a visit to the Susan B. Anthony house in Rochester. The orientation film is long, dated and not overly specific to the site itself. The tours of the chapel and Stanton home were brief and somewhat repetitive since the same ranger led... More

The Park Ranger knew a lot about the people and places and gave a great tour. The sites are a little spread out but worth travelling to see each one. The homes were very well preserved.

It's crazy to think that women have had the right to vote for less than a century in this country. Visiting this National Parks Site is a good way to remember that it took a lot of time, dedication and sacrifice to get the right to vote. It is worth a visit if you have an hour or two. I... More

This museum marks the significance of the women's suffrage movement and is an important part of US history. It's a pleasure to visit this museum. It's part of the national parks museum and it is free. The rangers are very helpful. There is a documentary outlining the movement. The statues of the activists are very well done and when you...

This is a great way to spend a couple of hours if visiting nearby or passing through. I'm an avid National Park visitor so it was great to be able to enjoy this while I was in town for a wedding. Of course I got to learn something too! If you have 1-2 hours do not skip!

having heard about seneca falls practically my entire life, i was happy to visit. they have a lot of great stuff here - the main problem is organization. You can read about the convention, you can read about aftermath of the convention, you can read about traditional jobs for women vs men, clothing restrictions, etc. All very interesting, but the...
