Susan B. Anthony Home is located just West of the Downtown Rochester, New York. I called to confirm the hours of operation (opens at 11:00) and got great driving directions. The home is located in the original Victorian neighborhood. The home is pretty much as it would have been when Susan B. Anthony, her sister and mother lived in the home. The house next door is the museum entrance and they have a very small parking lot. There is a small exhibit museum and gift shop in the building next door. The tours are lead by docents and the home is full of period pieces and some actual Anthony family furniture, pictures, clothes, the famous alligator purse she carried and other items. The tour takes 45-60 minutes including the "office" on the 3rd floor used by Anthony and her secretary and members to share the women's suffragette movement. Very informative, interesting connections to other movements and leaders of the day (Underground Railroad, and temperance) A History buff's dream. Reasonable entrance fee, discounts available ( seniors, etc.)

My family enjoyed this little piece of history while in Rochester. You first enter the family house next door to the Anthony home. This is where you pay and meet your docent for the tour. There is a small gift store and museum which you visit until the next docent is ready guide you to the Anthony home next door. The tour lasts approximately 45 minutes and is just the right amount of time for the tour. You can tell the home is well maintained and the people who work there are very knowledgeable. You feel welcomed. Definitely worth a visit while in Rochester for a little piece of history.

The docent was incredibly well informed and a joy to listen to. The house has been restored as accurately as possible. Absolutely worth a visit.

We had a great tour of this fascinating historic house in the center of Rochester, where Anthony lived for many years. Don't miss the charming sculpture of Anthony and Frederick Douglass in a nearby park. There is a parking lot and a nice gift shop.

Enjoyed the tour of the house and all the details given by our knowledgable guide. Pity we couldn't take any photos inside the house. Otherwise an excellent experience and very helpful and friendly staff.
