History

We went as a family. The exhibit was fascinating and educational. We learned about SBA, the National American Woman Suffrage Association and all the people she worked with.

I have visited this museum twice. There is a small museum with gift shop where you begin. Both trips were led by knowledgeable docents. Each emphasized different aspects of the museum and house and events in Anthony's life. Both times I gained a greater appreciation for what it took for women to obtain voting rights. Anthony gave her whole life... More

We stopped here for a quick visit that ended up being longer than planned, but well worth it. The staff here is well informed and welcoming, and all of our party--ranging from 17-68--very much enjoyed the tour of the property and the gift store offerings (especially the teacher among us!). We all realized the herculean efforts of Susan B. Anthony... More

My mother and I enjoyed Susan B's Rochester home. The guide told us some great stories. Thank you to Susan B and her role in getting women the right to vote.

Kids know about Rosa Parks and they need to know about Susan B., too. We can walk in her footsteps in this home and neighborhood. The nearby 1872 Cafe is a great stop too, so you can walk there for a treat. Seeing the artifacts and talking with the volunteers is memorable for adults and kids. This is not a... More

This house and museum are well worth the drive, the time and the money. Docent-led tours are informative and the only way to see the house. They depart when enough folks have shown up...we did not even wait 10 minutes to go on the tour. The history is fascinating for anyone interested in American history and/or the women's movement. The... More

The day we spend there was extraordinary. Learning about the woman behind the movement that gave half the population of these United States the vote was nothing short of exciting.....and it is totally wheelchair accessible....clearly they practice full inclusion for all.....

I silently cried, knowing the importance of where I was standing. I didn't know how I could come to respect the woman more, but I did. She devoted her entire life to the cause at much great sacrifice and you can learn so much about this fascinating person here. Standing between her bed and a case enclosing her signature black...
