After many months of renovation, conservation and cataloging of objects, exhibit and website design and amazing efforts from partners, the Museum is open to the public and ADA accessible! Visitors are invited to use the entrance on 2nd Street next to the Hart Senate Office Building.
The renovation work allowed Sewall-Belmont House & Museum to strengthen the foundations of the house, better preserve and exhibit the collections and move its mission forward with state of the art accessibility to the fabulous collection. The Museum now 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.”
