“One if the best historic tours I've been on”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2014

I've been on my share of tours of historic homes and places and found this to be one of the best tours available. I loved being able to walk through each room, not just peek in past the rope at the door. The docent conducting our your have us a lot of information about the furniture (and was a self admitted antique lover) with my children found a little dry but she also shared plenty of information about the Wilson's life in the home.

At only $15 for three of is, it's a bargain too! The lower level of the home is air conditioned which was a wonderful treat after walking the streets of Augusta in July.

“Informative, Engaging and an Must-Do Experience in Augusta”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2014

Stephanie, the primary guide of Woodrow Wilson’s Boyhood Home, is the definition of true southern hospitality. More than just a guide, Stephanie told the story of Woodrow Wilson’s childhood with such detail, it felt as if I was witnessing it live.

There was so much history within the walls of this attraction and would definitely recommend setting aside an hour experience this in Augusta.

A truly authentic ode to President “Tommy” Woodrow Wilson’s early years.

“Interesting and Informative”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2013

A last minute decision to visit a childhood home of President Wilson unfolded more information about the man. Having visited his other home in Virginia, it was interesting to see how the years spent in Augusta influenced and shaped his life. Growing up during the Civil War and being on the spot to see the wounded soldiers right across the street must have been a sobering experience.

The home was lovely, interesting information and Stephanie - my tour guide - did a marvelous job of bringing his life experiences to the fore front.

The property is open Thursday - Sunday, so take that into consideration if traveling through. And they do tours on the hour.

“Marvelous museum and historical treasure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

This is a fascinating and wonderful home of President Wilson in his youth. The history, the home and structures, and the museum set up are just fantastic. One learns so very much about the man, his home, and family.
