Marian Anderson Residence Museum

The simplicity of the Marian Anderson Residence Museum in Philadelphia belies the extraordinary accomplishments of the celebrated contralto during her lifetime. Every room of the modest childhood home contains personal items, musical mementos, artifacts and documents that highlight Anderson’s legacy as an artist and civil rights pioneer.
