Welcome to the National Susan B. Anthony Museum & House

The Anthony Museum has reopened to public tours with admission by online reservations only.

The National Susan B. Anthony Museum & House in Rochester, New York was the home of the legendary American civil rights leader, and the site of her famous arrest for voting in 1872. This home was the headquarters of the National American Woman Suffrage Association when she was its president. This is also where she died in 1906 at age 86, following her “Failure is Impossible” speech in Baltimore.

We invite you to tour our website to learn more about this great reformer and the many programs we offer to inspire others to change the world for the better. Visit the Photo Gallery, browse our Museum Shop, and learn about our ever-expanding programs.

And, if you happen to be in Rochester, NY, we invite you to come to 17 Madison Street. It’s an incredible and inspiring story that you won’t want to miss!
