“Not Much to See or Do”

National Women's Hall of Fame
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 24 August 2014

I thought the Hall of Fame would contain more artifacts and exhibits, but it's mostly just a collection of framed portraits and a few paragraphs describing each woman and her contributions to American history and culture. You'd get essentially the same experience locating the list of honorees online, Googling them one by one, and reading about them on Wikipedia that you do actually visiting the Hall of Fame-- this is hardly a twenty-first century display. It's basically a library of framed information, and unless you have a lot of time to spend there and are willing to power-read (on foot) without a break, you might as well research the women featured in the Hall from the comfort of your personal computer. They are moving to a new location soon, though, and hopefully will improve their display when they do, as space permits.

This place was really inspiring. I enjoyed walking around and reading about the different women and their many and varied achievements. My only thought would be that it's a lot of reading. Unless you have a very long attention span it would be difficult to read everything. I don't think that this is a bad thing in itself, as it would be unfair to exclude the women based on my short attention span, but it's probably not a place to bring young children. It also had a nice little gift shop. Oh, and it was $3 to get in.

Small facility but worth a visit. (They are moving to a newer bigger facility next year.) Entire self-tour is just reading "plaques" about those women inducted - but we spent over 1 hour there and only could read about a small portion of the plaques. Was very interesting and learned a lot! (Both husbands and wives felt this way.)

This is run by the National Parks Service. We did not know that the women's rights movement started in Seneca Falls in 1848. This is a must see exhibit by young and old alike.

I loved wandering through and reading the accomplishments of the various women who were honored here. I was surprised (and saddened) by just how often I had heard of the accomplishment or breakthrough, but had never heard anything about the woman who was responsible for it! It definitely needs more space! I'm told they have a great deal of memorabilia, but they have very little room for anything other than the plaques that honor the inductees. I'm looking forward to visiting them in future after they have moved to the mill! It is absolutely worth the price of admission!
