“Very nice informative guided tour”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2014 via mobile

Enjoyed the tour of the house and all the details given by our knowledgable guide. Pity we couldn't take any photos inside the house. Otherwise an excellent experience and very helpful and friendly staff.

“Historical Beauty”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2014

Historical Beauty located in the heart of the city. Gives you a true idea of what her life consisted of.
Take the time to walk through a little bit of history

“Great attraction right in my backyard”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2014

Went here when we had some out of town guest and one of the children needed to write a report on something educational she did during her trip. It ended up being a very excellent visit. The exhibits were well done and the docent very good at explaining the events and life of Susan B Anthony. A must visit for anyone coming to Rochester.

“Fascinating history”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2014

I thought I knew a lot about the early women's rights movement, but I learned many, may things while here. We had a wonderful tour guide who shared stories and pictures and all of her knowledge regarding Susan B Anthony and her peers and cohorts. Don't miss the statue of Susan B and Frederick Douglass (nearby park) and the Mt. Hope Cemetery, where Anthony and Douglass of them are buried. Lots of great history. Don't miss it.

“Wonderful experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2014

A lovingly maintained historic home inhabited by the Anthony family, including the most famous Anthony, suffragette Susan B. Although the house is called the Susan B. Anthony House, the museum's organizers make it clear that Susan was surrounded by family members and friends in the cause of women's voting rights, many of whom lived in the house.

One of the best aspects of the Susan B. Anthony House is its staff. We were heartily welcomed, and our guide was fantastic. She was enthusiastic about the house and the lives of all the women who passed through it. Any questions she couldn't answer, she made sure another staff member did at the tour's conclusion. Even though the house was quite busy with visitors, our group was not rushed.

The gift shop is great, too. I highly recommend stocking up on presents while you're there. It's for a good cause and the message is as relevant today as it was during the lives of the Anthony sisters.

We had never been to Rochester and found it very easy to locate.
