The Susan B. Anthony Birthplace Museum, Inc. Is a not-for-profit corporation, dedicated to preserving the birthplace and raising public awareness of the wide-ranging legacy of the great social reformer, Susan B. Anthony, who was a pioneering feminist and suffragist as well as a noteworthy figure in the abolitionist, opposition to Restellism (opposition to abortion), and temperance movements of the 19th century. As part of its mission, the Museum will highlight the familial and regional influences which shaped Ms.Anthony's early life, by displaying the textiles and furnishings of that period, as well as the literature and other memorabilia associated with her later career.

As we were driving home from the Natural Bridge, my sister saw the sign for Susan B. Anthony Birthplace. I've lived in Massachusetts my whole life and never knew she was born here. We did stop, but we did not go into the house. We had to get back home for various reasons, which is why we couldn't go inside.... More

My husband and I stopped at the Susan B. Anthony Birthplace Museum. It was a quiet day and we had the small home/museum to ourselves. The director acted as our docent and gave us options for a self-tour, audio-tour or a guided tour by her. I highly recommend the fully guided tour. There were many stories enthusiastically told that we... More

Had a fantastic time at SBABM today. Was pleasantly surprised that there were additions to exhibits since our last visit 2 years ago.

Nice, small museum highlighting Ms. Anthony's early years and chronicling her life as well. Worth the visit if you're in the area, and easy to do in an hour.

A small house, where she lived until she was six or seven. Not prepossessing, but interesting. Our docent was new, and not super informative, but pleasant and she tried. Others are more erudite.

We arrived on a Sunday afternoon and had a guide with just 3 of us. Yet, he took time to explain the simple home, the history of Suan B Anthony's family and the many causes she was involved with-- abolition, temperance, women's rights, Restellism. There is also information on others involved in the movements. There is only one actual artifact... More

Great place to learn about the women's rights movement in this country. Not just about Susan B. Anthony but also about a number of other women who were an important part of the movement. Still amazing that it took 150 years from our founding before women could vote. Lots of reading involved here about Susan's early history and then about... More

This isn't as advertised or landmarked for people passing through as I expected. Its in a scenic location and the entrance fee is reasonable. It is nicely renovated and with lots of information. However, sometimes I thought the info was choppy. Its a self-guided tour and you dont have workers everywhere breathing down ur neck.
