The Sewall-Belmont House & Museum is responsible for preserving and celebrating the remarkable and too often forgotten stories of women’s pursuit of equality. Accessibility, collection conservation, and technology enhancements allow this story to reach farther and wider than ever before.
The Museum exhibits 250 individual collection objects including Elizabeth Cady Stanton’s chair, Susan B. Anthony’s desk, an original Jail Door Pin presented to suffragists who were imprisoned after picketing the White House, and Votes for Women china commissioned by Alva Belmont. In addition, eight banners are on exhibit, including one reading “Working Women Need The Vote” and one reading “The Young Are At The Gates.”
Visitors to the Museum are invited to use the entrance on 2nd Street next to the Hart Senate Office Building.

On April 12, 2016 the Sewall-Belmont House & Museum became a National Park site.
