The Susan B. Anthony Museum & House is a learning center that shares the story of Susan B. Anthony's life and work through tours and programs at the modest home in the heart of Rochester, NY, that was the home base for the great reformer for 40 years and through an online presence.

  • It has now been 100 years since the 19th amendment was ratified granting women the right to vote. While we celebrate these outstanding leaders in the women’s rights movement, it is important to recognize the many barriers like the poll tax, white primaries, inaccessibility of polls and other subtle (and not so subtle) restrictions remained, stifling a free, democratic vote for ALL people. This museum does a wonderful job in retelling her history without sanitizing it. To honor the legacy of these great women who fought for our rights we must always do 2 things: Vote and speak up when someone’s right to vote is being restricted. Thank you for preserving her home and educating visitors on her journey.
  • Our tour guide was great! The tour was so informative and the gift shop has GREAT gifts. A true gem of our history.
