You are only allowed to see the house via guided tour (something I rarely enjoy - doesn't suit my personality) ... but I have to say that our docent (Susan) was wonderful. The rooms of the house themselves are nothing particularly remarkable -- but the history lessons were excellent. Learn about Susan B. Anthony's origins and the process by which... More

I drove into the old neighborhood in Rochester NY wanting to visit the museum. The neighborhood is being rehabbed and there was Susan B, Anthony's House and museum. The docent Linda was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. She made into quite the learning experience for me. the tour took 45 minutes and was well worth the $10 admission. There is a... More

Who would have thought a quiet revolution was taking place in a conventional, 19th century house? Susan B. Anthony 's life is presented beautifully by a room of exhibits and then by docents on tours. The house is preserved as closely as possible to how it was during Anthony ' s life., from 1820 to 1906. Susan B. Anthony was... More

This is a national treasure. Our docent "Jackie" was well informed, happy, and most attentive to our needs. This is a restored actual piece of our history. Everybody should visit to get a basic history lesson as to who this person was and how she made our country a better place. The first floor was well accommodated to accessibility. The... More

Thank you for the review! We're so glad you enjoyed your visit and can't wait to welcome your granddaughters some day soon. Being an historic house site, #17 does have accessibility concerns. We are actively working to create a solution which would allow everyone to experience all three floors of the House. Our visitor center at #19 and Carriage House... More

A name many may know, but few know more than that. This will rectify that and when you leave, you'll be further impressed by her achievements.

This home is located in a lovely little neighborhood. My husband and I were the only two on our tour, led by docent Fran. You enter through the visitor center-museum next door. This home was occupied by Susan’s sister. After a brief time in the museum, Fran took us to the SBA’s home. We spent at least an hour on... More

Located in an unassuming neighbourhood, the Susan B. Anthony House may not have all the original furnishings, but it is chalk full of history, told by passionate docents. I knew nothing about this important personality or the intimate connection between America's suffragette and abolitionist movements. It made our trip to Rochester worthwhile.

It is a most interesting story. The docent, Nancy, was so great and so knowledgeable. We thoroughly enjoyed this visit and learned so very much.

We visited the Museum this past Saturday as an outing with our two Grand Sons. As usual the facility was very clean and the staff were extremely family oriented. This is not the least bit unusual.
