The National Susan B. Anthony Museum & House TTMM shares the story of Susan B. Anthony’s lifelong struggle to gain voting rights for women and equal rights for all. We keep her vision alive and relevant by preserving and sharing Anthony’s National Historic Landmark home; collecting artifacts and research materials directly related to her life and work; and making these resources available to the public through tours, publications, the internet, and interpretive programs. Come visit us today!

The National Susan B. Anthony Museum & House was the home of the legendary American civil rights leader during the 40 most politically active years of her life, 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. Come visit through the Photo Gallery, browse through the merchandise in our museum shop, and learn about our ever-expanding programs. Best yet, come see us in person! It's an incredible and inspiring story that you just don't want to miss!
