She deserves the visit!

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... read 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...

I knew the name, but now I know so much more. She took most of her life to allow women to vote. She traveled thousands of miles at a time when it was very difficult to travel.

I highly recommend visiting the home of leading suffragist Susan B Anthony. It is fascinating -- and important -- to see where Anthony lived and worked, especially as we near the centennial of the 19th amendment which enfranchised women. Our tour guide was superb -- articulate, engaging, and extremely well-informed. The home contains many original items and is furnished to... More

I only knew Susan B Anthony as an historical figure but few details about her life and all she achieved for women's right to vote. The museum staff was incredibly friendly and knowledgeable. This is one site that is definitely worth the visit!!

I have been to this museum two different times now and plan to go again. I loved getting a look at Susan B. Anthony, the person--what she was like, who her sister was, her relationship with Frederick Douglass. Speaking of which, just a block from the museum is a spectacular statue of the two of them together. If you have... More
