This is definitely worth a visit, especially since most of us forget that women in the US very not allowed to vote for too many years. It's humbling to recall our own emergence from backwardness. Also provides interesting details about the movement.

We thoroughly enjoyed the visit. The docent was so informative and explained facts to children in our group. We learned things that we didn't know. Thank goodness for Susan B. Anthony, and women like her, who forged ahead to give all women the rights they deserved.

Insightful and well done tour. I think we learned what made Susan B. tick. Not a lot of parking, so go early in the day.

I was lucky to arrive as the docent (Peggy) was starting the tour. Plan to spend about an hour on the tour. Well guided and thorough tour. Great information. Be prepared to climb two flights of stairs.

History buffs will find the Anthony house a very interesting way to spend an hour or two. Guides show you the house and share Anthony's role in the struggle to get voting rights for women. This site compliments others in the greater Rochester area related to women's rights and abolition.

Friendly staff. Lots of great tchatchkes in the giftshop. Given that the Anthonys were not wealthy people, the house is not very large, but interesting for a quick visit.

Quite an interesting place to visit! I felt chills as I heard the story of Susan B Anthony's arrest for voting, right in the room we stood in. Also very touching to see her attic workroom - could imagine all the important accomplishments that had their roots there! The park across the street is also a very welcoming place to... More

My husband and I visited the Anthony House to lean about Susan's life and her role in the women's rights movement. We had been to the National Women's Rights National Park in Seneca Falls earlier this summer. Unfortunately, our docent was ill prepared to lead tours and relate the history and stories about Susan's life and legacy. She referred to... More

My wife and I and another couple visited this site. The Docent was very knowledgeable but a little hard to hear sometimes.You learn a lot about the suffrage movement and the strength of the women involved in it. It is something parents should take their kids to regardless of whether they are girls or boys. It costs $10 to get... More
