#6 of 7 in Things to do in Seneca Falls
In 1969, the women and men of Seneca Falls created the National Women's Hall of Fame, believing that the contributions of American women deserved a permanent home in the small village where the fight for women's rights began. The Hall is currently housed in the Helen Mosher Barben Building, in the heart of the downtown Historic District.

The National Women's Hall of Fame, the nation's oldest membership organization, pays tribute to some of the greatest women in the history of this country. This esteemed group grows with each Induction Ceremony and as women continue to influence and shape the arts, athletics, business, education, government, humanities, philanthropy and science.

  • Great place to visit and see some of the amazing things that women have done. I thought it was a great place to visit. Could be a little dry if reading and pictures aren't your thing, but I spent about 2 hours reading and looking at women that I had never been exposed to
  • Small building. They are moving soon. Interesting group of women.
  • Friendly, knowledgable and helpful staff. Amazing learning about the Seneca Falls Conference and the women who have help to make this country great. This is a must when visiting Seneca Falls. They are working on a bigger location for the museum and I can't wait to return.
  • Early stage of women's history museum. Mostly has pictures of women and description of what they did. Site of mourning for Hillary Clinton loss.
  • Kind of boring, just a bunch of plaques on the wall. Hopefully will be more interesting when they move to a bigger location.
