Sewall Belmont House And Museum

The Sewall-Belmont House and Museum is the headquarters of the historic National Woman's Party and was the Washington home of its founder and Equal Rights Amendment author Alice Paul.

Sewall-Belmont, named in the first Save America's Treasures legislation, is the only museum in the nation's capital dedicated to preserving and showcasing a crucial piece of our history—the fight for the American woman's right to vote. This struggle is documented through one of the most significant collections in the country focused on the suffrage and equal rights movements.

The Museum, a National Historic Landmark, offers educational programming and is open for public tours five days a week. The archive is open by appointment only to students and researchers who wish to utilize the unique and extensive collection of rare books, photographs, scrapbooks, and personal papers.

We hope you enjoy our work.
