I stopped in after attending the Women’s March. If you are interested in history, it is worth a stop. Small museum, so it does not take up much of your time. If you bring your passport, they have Seneca Fall stamps you can use! They...More

This was a fun place to meet up with extended family - we aged 75-8 and everyone enjoyed the museum. Interesting & interactive exhibits.

A stop at this museum was well worth the investment of time for us. It explains why you won't find any waterfalls in Seneca Falls. Very detailed exhibits explore the industry and history of the Erie Canal. Volunteers and staff were very friendly.

We didn’t realize this canal town had at one time, so many industries. Be prepared to spend some time browsing the 3 floors of displays. On nice days, you can walk outside along the canal. There is no admission charged but that doesn’t mean it’s...More

This free, three story, Museum is located pretty much in the middle of downtown Seneca Falls. On the backside (south entrance), you are literally "at" the Cayuga-Seneca Canal. The Museum is appropriately named with displays that pertain to both the Waterways and the Industries that...More

This museum had some hands on activities and a great history of the area. Center is so close to a number of other historical sites in Seneca Falls, it is certainly a great part of others it to that village

I am not a big fan of museums of any type but if you know anything about the Finger Lakes and Canal system, this museum was informative about Seneca Falls and its rich waterway history

Situated on the Erie Canal this three floor local museum offers a history lesson about the very important events in state and local history. There is information on the founding and growth of the town as well as the woman's rights movement.
