“Very interesting tour”
Reviewed October 3, 2011

My mother and I had a wonderful tour of the two houses. Our guide, Freddie, was very knowledgeable and interesting. If you have any interest in women's rights or history, this is a must-see in Rochester. The neighborhood is just beautiful.

“Another Must See in Rochester, NY”
Reviewed August 15, 2011

I am so grateful for this woman's efforts and I really enjoyed this museum. There were quite a few artifacts that I found facsinating. The tour was very good, they gave you enough information and were knowledgeable about our questions. I wish we had more time though, we got in for the last tour of the day. I loved the fact that this house is still in a neighborhood and did not become commercialized so you could imagine what it must have been like for Susan when she lived here.

“A wonderful tour by a friendly and knowledgeable staff”
Reviewed September 13, 2010

This was my first stop on a recent trip to the Finger Lakes region to visit the sites associated with the beginnings of the women's rights movement, and I can only say: kudos to the director and staff of the Susan B. Anthony House in Rochester for keeping her legacy alive!

“Inspiring bit of history”
Reviewed August 22, 2010

I had an excellent time at the SBA house. I had a couple of hours at the end of my stay, and was running a few minutes late. I called and the staff made sure I got into the last tour of the day.

Apparently finding a cab is REALLY difficult, so ask your hotel shuttle for a ride or book your airport cab well in advance. I lucked out that the hotel shuttle was able to pick me up after not getting a cab ride that could pick me up on time for my flight. (Almost everything is close to the airport there.)
