  • Overview

    New York State is where the first Women's Rights Convention was held in Seneca Falls in 1848 and where women won the right to vote in 1917, three years before the 19th amendment was ratified. This special one-hour tour will explore the connections between the Capitol and the historic fight for suffrage. 

    All tours begin at the Empire State Plaza Visitor Center and Gift Shop at the northern end of the concourse closest to the Capitol. Space is limited, so arrive early to secure a spot.

    Visitors to the Capitol will be required to pass through metal detectors and have any bags scanned through an x-ray machine. Personal belongings such as backpacks and large bags should not be brought on the tour. Sharp objects, such as pocket knives and nail clippers, will not be allowed into the building.
