Nineteenth century home is neighborhood of similar residences. Rooms furnished as they were in Anthony's time with many photos and artifacts. Most of all, a knowledgeable, friendly, patient tour guide to make it all come alive. Allow about an hour, more or less, to get a better understanding of the struggle for women's rights and other reform movements.

Our tour guide was thorough, fascinating and knew how to make the tour interesting for children and adults alike. We learned more about the history of women's rights here than at the national historical park in Seneca Falls.

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

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
