  • This is a very nice place for DC visitors to escape the crowds while still finding a very imortant, meaningful, and compelling experience. Friendly people and a comfortable environment, also free
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Great place to just sink in the history of the women's suffrage movement. The staff was excellent and you get to interact with some of the items.
