Average only because I was unable to take a tour of the house. Tickets weren't available until three hours later and I had walked from downtown. I did enjoy the display in the visitor's center and purchased a couple of things. If you go, be sure to drive down the block to the park to see the statue "Time For Tea" of Anthony and Frederick.

This was an outstanding tour of an American icon and suffragette. The tour information was well balanced and included information that exposed some of her flaws. It also included info about other suffragettes who were not white. Very well done

Got some free passes from the library and decided to check out the Susan B Anthony House and Museum. I reserved my spot online a few days earlier and got ready for the tour. We started with a brief movie about Susan and her family which had a lot of info and then took it the first floor of the house (upper floors closed due to Covid).

The Docent did a good job talking about her life and her place within the movement of voting and women's rights, including both positive and negative aspects. This included info on her relationship with Frederick Douglas and Elizabeth Cady Stanton which I found very interesting.

After the house, I went back and took in the museum which has a few items from her life and the movement and a nice gift shop. The house is in a nice neighborhood and you can walk to the park to see the Douglas and Anthony statues in the nearby park and the Cafe 1872 which marks the site she first voted.

This is a nice place to take in some important Rochester & American history.

I can't believe I'm giving the SBA house a 3, but we both agreed it was not a great tour. It started with a slide presentation and a talk from the docent - the docent did not know how to use technology, so the slide show was a bit difficult, but the real trouble was that she had a hard time focusing and finishing her thoughts. She was all over the place and would start to say something and not finish it. I feel terrible saying this, but it is what it is; I will say she was very enthusiastic. There are just a couple of rooms to see in the house, and it's really not especially exciting. There is a small room in the visitor's center with a lot of text to read and a few items on display - with just four small walls, we were surprised that information was actually repeated. We left having to google about SBA to learn about her, we did not feel we had much of a picture from our visit. There is a small gift shop that was actually the highlight, as it had some funny items for some strong amazing women. You can walk a couple of blocks to see the spot where SBA voted and the small memorial there, and the large statue of SBA and Frederick Douglass having tea.

Interesting tour, but mighty short (45 min) for the $15 cost. Some new information but not as much as I had hoped. Found Women's Rights Museum in Geneva more informative and it presented in-depth details of suffrage movement.

Our tour guide was courteous, informative and animated giving a detailed lecture with period correct photographs. We learned not just about Susan B. Anthony, but her camaraderie with fellow progressive individuals such as Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Frederick Douglass.

This experience is priceless. Very well structured and interesting. My son got chills when standing in Susan B Anthony’s bedroom. This was the room she was in when she passed. Would recommend for anyone.

Come see where history was made - not just for women - but for all Americans! Docent led tours of the house are well crafted to deliver a concise history of the house and it's famous occupant. The house has been nicely restored, with some original items returning the home; including Ms. Anthony's famous alligator hand bag. Stand in the room where Ms. Anthony was arrested for voting in the Presidential Election of 1872. The house next door is a small but informative visitors center, which is where the tours depart from. There is limited free parking at the visitor center; after which there is on-street parking. Go see one of America's most famous citizen's home; you won't be disappointed. The site is run by a society and is not associated with the government. There is a nominal admission charge, with student, senior and AAA discounts available.

What an incredible women. Susan B. Anthony’s life of dedication to American women rights. So many things I never knew about her the house and is interesting, but’s more about the stories and people she knew. Our guide was good she took her time with questions and had a great knowledge of Susan. The tour is an hour, ours ran a bit longer. Great stop to stop if you’re in the area.
