A great guided tour that is included with the $10 admission. Very personal and informative about the president, his house, family and the the time period.

Awesome staff, though the docent was very scripted/dry. The house was beautiful and we enjoyed a nice movie ahead of time. The visit was really reasonable and in a beautiful neighborhood. The items in the house are almost all original and it is 12,000 square feet and almost 100 years old!

Off the beaten path museum dedicated to Woodrow Wilson. Offers an intimate experience inside the home that Pres. Wilson lived in after leaving office. Come for the history, but you'll also get a rare look inside a stately DC rowhouse - the type you see all around Dupont Circle but never get to go inside. Backyard garden is lovely too.

We really enjoyed visiting Woodrow Wilsons home. The docent was excellent - very knowledgeable. The home was left as is & there is a short movie that is worth watching before the tour. The house is in a local neighborhood - look for the flag in front of the house

Interesting view of our 28th president. The preserved home of Woodrow Wilson gave a personal insight to the man. Well preserved but not extravagant. Not really easy to find. No crowds. This is a good option (near Dupont Circle) after you have viewed the main sights of our Capital.

We chose to visit President Wilson's home on a recent trip to D.C. We had been to many of the more popular and common sites there on previous trips, but this time we chose things "off the beaten path." We loved the tour of this home! It is filled with original artifacts and furnishings, and some very modern technology -... More

A fascinating look into the life of President Woodrow Wilson after he left the White House. Due to his second wife's meticulous job of maintaining his legacy, you really get a sense of what his life was like in this elegant Washington home. The video gives you a good overview of his life and the tour guide was very knowledgeable... More

Take a sunny day, bring a friend and step back into 1924. What do you know about the League of Nations? Did you know that the U.S. feared a border war with Mexico? Enjoy the tour of the house, but really enjoy the history lesson.

We went to this museum, watched the intro video, and went on a guided tour of the home. The historical record is fascinating. Our guide, Matt, was fabulous. He brought the era and the events alive, with uncanny insight and political/historical knowledge! I thoroughly enjoyed the narrative as we viewed the beautiful home. We lucked out three times: one, to... More
