    I decided to tour the house on my own, and was glad I did. The short intro film did great to get me started, and then saw the history of Women's Suffrage come to life while roaming the house.  more »

    Headquarters of the National Woman's Party, this historic home in Washington DC documents the fight for passage of the The Susan B. Anthony Amendment (19th) and the ongoing work of the Party in support of women's rights. Excellent NPS Rangers give entertaining commentary.

    This is an interesting national monument. It's basically a house where a political party performed it's organizing duties. But that party happened to be responsible for pushing thru legislation to get women the right to vote. Take the tour to get the good stories. I really felt the gritty power of the woman who went to jail to get us our vote. I don't like gift shops but recommend this one because it sells soap and tea, the same things the suffragettes sold to support their cause. It also sells jail door necklaces. They are great gifts for women and you can have a conversation about when and how women got the vote.

    I'd prefer if the museum operated privately instead of being added to the rolls of taxpayer-funded Federal programming via the Antiquities Act. But the museum is interesting and educational.

    Fun small new addition to the national Parks service. It really is great to have a monument to the ingenuity, endurance, and sacrifice these women made in the suffrage movement

Where to stay in Washington DC

Most visitors to Washington, D.C., end up in the East End, the old downtown district containing most of the city's major cultural attractions. For a more authentic Washingtonian experience, consider staying at a smaller hotel just a little north or east of this busy area. Neighborhoods outside downtown offer less expensive accommodations and affordable street parking, as well as opportunities to meet more locals and fewer tourists. Alternatively, try a hotel in Georgetown, packed with high-end shops and Colonial architecture.
