This museum is included in the Seneca Falls Visitor Center. They have a nice diorama of the town in the mid 1800's.

Just the kind of quirky small museum we love. Very informative and full of artifacts one doesn't normally see. The dioramas are fascinating. Just be sure to enter on the Fall St side, not the downstairs entrance on the waterfront.
