Only for the true Wilson Fan. There are just too many more outstanding possibilities for the rest of us.

Pat - I'm sorry that you found your overall experience to be 'Poor' - we'll work on making the site enjoyable to all visitors, not just the Wilson Fans. But I'm happy to hear we got the 'walk through living history' part right! More

The Woodrow Wilson House tour was hosted by a lovely docent named Fay. She had a lot of anecdotal information for us about the president, his first wife Ellen, and his second wife Edith. It gave us a highly personalized and non-political glimpse into this president. We got to see the den (called the Dugout by the President and his... More

We really enjoyed this small museum. We had an excellent tour guide who was very informative. There was so much history in the museum. We learned a lot!!! I agree with earlier reviewer, it is probably not the best place for small children and is not easily accessible with a stroller.

We found a Groupon to visit, and we really enjoyed this house, which is much larger at 12k SF than it appears. Our docent was very informative and friendly. Would recommend for mature audiences. Small children would probably be quite bored and distracting to others during the 40 minute tour.

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
