National Susan B. Anthony Museum & House Interpretive Center

honoring a legacy

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. The home, a National Historic Landmark, was the headquarters of the National American Woman Suffrage Association when she was its president. It is also where she died in 1906 at age 86, following her “Failure is Impossible” speech in Baltimore. 

A new museum facility near Anthony’s house is underway that will increase capacity for visitation at the historic campus, emphasizing the power of place and providing a complementary immersive experience exploring the themes of Susan B. Anthony’s life—including civil rights, voting rights and equal pay for women—resonating with contemporary audiences. Artifacts related to her life and work will be featured, along with tours and interpretive programs to inspire and challenge individuals to make a positive difference. 

The museum is projected to open late in 2024.
