The Park has displays that are housed in an adjacent building. There is a video which explains the Women's Right Movement, as well as lots of displays, artifacts and photographs.

A charming national "vestpocket" park next to the Women's Rights Museum (also National Park Service-FREE) where you can savor the ladies who began a movement which is still rippling through the present!

there are several buildings to visit to make your trip more enjoyable. The park rangers are available to run tours and answer questions. Much to see and learn about the rights of women and these inspirational people who made it possible.

The museum offers a brief history of the Women's Rights movement. The staff were friendly and the location of the museum was easy to find. I brought my teenagers to learn about the women's suffrage movement and we were a little disappointed. The museum is...More

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...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...More

I just learned that everything will be closed when we scheduled to visit next week. I cannot believe how sad this is at this point in our nation's history! I'm bringing my 9-year-old daughter from California to learn about women's history after all we've been through this last year as a country. I cannot emphasize how disappointed I am that nothing will be open as I doubt we will ever be in this part of the country again. Is there anything at all we can see on a Tuesday?

The Park will reopen seven days a week on July 9th. There is a beautiful water wall next the visitor center in Declaration Park. We are very sorry to miss you on your visit to Seneca Falls.
If you are closed on Mondays, what days are you open? (and hours)

Women's Rights National Historical Park is open Wednesday through Sunday, hours are 9am-5pm. We look forward to your visit.
We are driving through on a Monday and sad that you are closed that day. My daughter is so bummed! Is there much to see from the outside when the buildings are closed?

Yes, there is the Declaration of Sentiments Water Wall in Declaration Park. The area is adjacent to the visitor center. Note that the national park is open July 18th 9 am to Noon for the closing events of Convention Days.
