Susan B Anthony Birthday Luncheon

The National Susan B. Anthony Museum & House in Rochester, NY 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 through the Photo Gallery, browse through the merchandise in our museum shop, and learn about our ever-expanding programs.

Please, come see us in person! It's an incredible and inspiring story that you just don't want to miss. To view our hours and admissions, ask questions about your tour, or find directions to the museum, click here!
