An excellent tour. Our docent, Annie, was engaging and knowledgeable. She made history come alive. As soon as she began speaking we all looked at each other and thought, "She is amazing." I believe she may actually be the director. On a day when the museum was overwhelmed with visitors and short on volunteer tour guides she took a big... More

A friend of mine arranged to give us a group tour of the Susan B. Anthony House. Even though I had made numerous trips to Rochester in the last few years, I wasn't aware of this gem. It's very low-key compared to most of the better-known Rochester attractions. I'm sure with the 100th anniversary of women's suffrage coming up (let... More

This is an unimposing house set in a residential area as it was when she lived there. Well preserved and recreated to match the era it is well done as a historical piece. Docents and staff are interesting, informed, and engaging. I recommend at least two hours to really enjoy it. The statue of Douglas and Anthony which is in... More

Beautiful home and great museum. Very knowledgeable people running this place and several years ago they began hunting for artifacts from her life. They are doing an excellent job here. Worth taking the time to visit.

I went here with two of my daughters and a nine-year-old granddaughter on a recent visit to upstate New York and the Rochester area. What a delightful visit we had! My granddaughter loved hearing all about Susan B. Anthony and how one woman can make a difference! Susan B. Anthony devoted her whole life to obtaining "the vote" for women;... More

We had a nice visit at this museum with a good tour of the house with a lady that had lots of stories about Ms. Anthony.

From modest beginnings....Our tour guide was a retired history teacher and was passionate (as were other staff members we met) about her subject - Susan B. Anthony, her family, and her times. Much care was taken during the restoration of this house to try to make it look the way it did when former school teacher Anthony lived there. Down... More

Knowledgeable staff walks you through her house and museum to help educate and entertain. We had to knock at the door when it was time to open because staff is small and busy so was unaware of the time. It is supposed to open at 11:00.

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.
