  • Wonderful national park dedicated to the history of the Women's Rights Movement -- located at the site where the activism started "Seneca Falls." If you have the opportunity, try to come the third weekend in July when they celebrate "Convention Days." Another good time is Memorial Day Weekend when neighboring Waterloo celebrates its status as the first site of Memorial Day after the Civil War with a parade, a Civil War encampment, historical impersonators, music, and a fireworks display.
  • This is a small but impressive place to visit. They have great displays and are very friendly. You will only need an hour or so.
  • Great place to learn about the first wave of feminism and women's suffrage in the US. It was powerful to stand underneath the original cross beams of the Weslyan Chapel where the Seneca Falls Convention took place. The exhibits in the visitor center examine many aspects of women's position in society throughout history, and urge visitors to examine the state of gender equality presently. The exhibits mainly focus on first wave feminism and feminists, and only begin to explore the 2nd wave and an understanding of intersectional feminism.
  • Interesting place. This is self guided, so you can take as much time as you need. National Park, admission is free. Parking around town is free. Seneca Falls has a cute little Main Street.
  • Great place to learn more about the Women's Rights movement in America. I wish we would have given ourselves more time here, lots to learn. We only had about an hour, another 1-2 hours would have been great. The rangers were so knowledgeable, they really bright the place and time to life.
