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.

The museum displays are well kept and informative, and provides lovely snapshots of how the co-evolution of the waterways and industry shaped towns in the region. Museum staff seemed distracted and unhelpful, though we may just have caught them on a full belly after lunch...More
