We don’t have children, much less a daughter. If the birth of the suffragette movement is of interest to you, then you should go. Your husbands and son’s eyes will glaze over quickly because they can’t empathize…..even your daughter may not understand/appreciate it. Best to send them across the street to take in the waterfront park while you peruse the exhibits. I'm not trying to offend anyone but this is a very focused exhibit. Not Recommended.

This is a truly unique National Park, following the history of the Women's Rights movemebt while focusing on its roots in the 1848 Convention held in Seneca Falls. At that point in time, the former Village (now incorporated into the Town of Seneca Falls) was a bit of a hotbed of reform movements: anti-slavery, pro-prohibition and pro-women's rights. That's a bit of a mixed bag, so exploring the movement is not as clear-cut as it might seem. The influence of area Quakers (largely absent from the modern-day Seneca Falls) becomes an important part of the story. Through film, displays and some impressive life-size statuaries, visitors get a feel for what that mid-19th century movement might have looked like and felt like. Factual tidbits like the fact that it was a Quaker millwright who financed the building of the Wesleyan Methodist Chapel because of that church's support for the anti-slavery movement, and that those anti-slavery sentiments were a major cause of a split among Methodist Churches are just a couple of the fascinating things you might learn.

Took the morning tour Sept 28 given by one of the rangers. Very good. Then over to see the Stanton House. Good tour there, too.

My family loved this place. We visited the museum, chapel, and Elizabeth Cady Stanton's house. Really awesome.

The Park was free!! It includes the museum and other landmarks of the women’s rights movement. It’s definitely worth the stop.
