I took my parents here on their recent visit. The only presidential house in the district! The guided tour (on the hour) consists of a 15 minute introduction movie about the presidency of the Wilson, then a tour of the house, it's many rooms, and artifacts. While our guide was a little conscious about getting the tour done in time,... More

My husband, 14 year old daughter and I were in DC for a family wedding. We decided to make the best of the trip and do some sight seeing. We stayed in DuPont circle and found out that the Woodrow Wilson house was just a few blocks from our hotel. We walked to the house...which was a nice walk. The... More

This is a narrated tour of a private residence. Our guide did a wonderful job with her narrative and was very good at answering questions. The house is still fully furnished and appointed. A good history lesson from many aspects.

My husband wants to see all the Presidential homes, so here we were. This is off the beaten path, in the Embassy Row area. It was not crowded at all. There is a small fee, then you watch a movie about Woodrow Wilson's life, and then a tour. It was fascinating. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and loved when... More

My wife and I were in Washington for a little sightseeing trip in August (not the best time to visit the D.C. area for a couple with no kids) and we were looking for something different away from the multitudes. While searching for things to see, my wife came upon the Woodrow Wilson house. We were staying near the Mall... More

Very authentic experience. Makes you think what it was like to come from high office back to private life -- and suffering from the results of a debilitating stroke -- from the White House to a much smaller, but still awfully fancy, home. It is a very well maintained facility and is thus like stepping back in time 100 years.... More

Most original condition presidential residence we have visited. Mrs. Wilson kept everything the same until her passing in the 60's before having it donated in her will. So all the furniture, art, decor, etc. is exactly the way it was when he left office. It is really worth visiting if you want to experience a little bit of time travel.

Great opportunity to learn more about President Wilson but what I really enjoyed was the glimpse back through time to a home of this era. If you are up near DuPont Circle and have an hour, this home is worth a visit.

This house is a little bit away from other tourist sites, but we figured out how to take the bus, leaving a walk of under 1/2 mile. We were the only people on our tour, so got all our interests highlighted. One of the nicest historic homes we've visited. You get very close to an authentic piece of history. A... More

We're glad you were able to find us using public transportation! The closest bus line is the N2, N4, or N6 which stops on Massachusetts Ave at S Street, NW just one block from Wilson House. You can also take the Metro Red line to Dupont Circle and walk about 5.5 blocks to Wilson House. There are lots of bikeshare... More
