We had purchased a Groupon for $10 for two adult tickets. It was well worth $5 each. There are two houses, one which has some displays and a gift shop. The display is a timeline of the suffrage movement and is housed in a large room which can hold probably 20-25 people. Very nice. The second house is actually Susan's... More

The guided tour is very educational and illustrates the struggle to gain equal rights to vote between men and women at the start of the last century. Also the chronological map of countries allowing women's vote. Kudos to New Zealand for being the first!!! Unable to take pictures inside the house is a bummer.

It gave a good picture of what life was like while she lived there, and provided a good deal of information about her and he times. Steep steps, so not a good place if climbing is difficult.

Inspiring story of SB Anthony and her focused efforts to get the vote, which did not occur until 20 years after her death. We had seen 2 quilts made by Susan at another museum that morning. The story is more impressive than the house.

Everyone studies Susan B. Anthony and should, seeing her family home is a must. I hope they revitalize the area and save the houses. It makes you thankful for what we have today! From voting rights to homes. We take so much for granted.

The tour guide was very knowlegible of Susan's life, and contribution to the sufferage movement. The house was minimal and didn't add much to the guides story but was interesting none the less. My impression after listing to the details of her life was that she was not a happy woman. there were no photographs of her smiling, she appeared... More

I had a three day mini-vacation in Rochester, NY. Stopping here turned out to be the best part of the trip. I arrived late in the afternoon, and since I was the only visitor I got a private docent tour. We took a long time going through the house and she provided a lot of information and was able to...

We loved how the two homes associated with Susan B. Anthony were next door to each other, nestled in a bustling family centered neighborhood. The walking tour was interesting and very informative. We came away with a newfound appreciation for Ms. Anthony, her family, and friends.
