This well-designed tribute to the role of women in America is a real treat, educate yourself listening to a Park Ranger narrate this incredible story of the struggle of women to receive their deserved equal rights. A Must See.

Inspiring place to visit. The rangers were helpful and knowledgeable. Unfortunately they are very understaffed due to the Federal hiring freeze, so the place is only open a few days a week. I recommend checking the website for hours before going. The film shown in the visitors center was good as far as the history goes but the modern portions... More

I have nothing bad to say about the park or the people who work there - we were unlucky enough to visit during the week the first week they were closed weekdays except Friday. We had checked the NPS site - but apparently a few days too early. It was a huge part of the reason we went to Seneca... More

After many years of driving by on our way to the Canadian maritimes, we finally had the time to stop in Seneca Falls and see this site. It was well worth the time. The history of women's suffrage is nicely told in the museum and the park service staff provide a great lecture in the Wesleyan Chapel next to the... More

The Women's Rights Movement began in Seneca Falls in 1848. This museum chronicles the history starting then and shows that it is still in the process of continuing. Usually the National Park does a good job at their introductory movies, but this one fell short. It was trite, did not show the real history of the movement, and almost made... More

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...
