At the National Women’s Hall of Fame, our mission all day, every day is “Showcasing great women… Inspiring all!”

Welcome to the National Women's Hall of Fame, the cultural institute in Seneca Falls New York that is dedicated to America's finest, most accomplished women throughout history.

The National Women's Hall of Fame was founded in 1969 and is the nation's oldest membership organization and museum dedicated to honoring and celebrating the achievements of distinguished American women. In pursuit of its mission of "Showcasing great women...Inspiring all!" the National Women's Hall of Fame honors the women of the past, relates the history of women's struggles, prepares the women of the future, and serves as the voice celebrating the value of women.

Situated in Seneca Falls, NY, the birthplace of American women's rights, the Hall tells women's stories by focusing on the leadership lessons from its Inductees throughout American history. In 2020 the Hall of Fame is reopening in its new home in the former Seneca Knitting Mill, the first step of creating a vibrant, state-of-the-art facility serving as a leadership center and an educational venue where visitors can discover and be inspired by the stories of great American women.
