  • I absolutely LOVE the Susan B. Anthony house. This is probably one of the best historical sights I have ever seen in America. The staff here are wonderful and provide very detailed and informational tours. The price is so reasonable and it is really the most informational, educational and enjoyable experience. I love the amount of historical content provided in the tour and on site. This is great for those interested in women's rights and local history. If you live in the area, nearby or are stopping through - a must see.
  • It was a cold and damp day so we stopped for the tour. Our docent Martha Tedrowe knew more about SBA then the law allows, and I came out of the tour with more knowledge, a better appreciation and support for the women's suffrage movement and the continuing struggle than I ever would have imagined. I would highly recommend this tour. It's short, informative and inspring. Even the kids loved it.
  • Brings the truth of the struggle for women's rights to an easily-graspable level. Sometimes it can be hard to forget that the fight is advanced only by individuals working together, rather than some nebulous social trend.
  • Amazing tour. Freddie was our tour guide and she was fantastic. She was knowledgeable and told us fascinating facts and stories. This museum is a must see. It is inspiring and important to Rochester culture.
  • Excellent staff. Lots of knowledge. In a sketch neighborhood though
