Interesting place to visit. A bit far from the main attractions in DC, but worth the visit, specially for those interested in history.

I did not get a chance to tour the inside, but this was still cool to see from the outside. I would recommend it for any fan of presidential history.

The Woodrow Wilson House is a window into the life of President Wilson and his days after leaving the White House. Much of the house remains as it was when he and his wife lived there; he died in the bedroom upstairs. Interesting collection of...More

The house is out of the way, tucked among the embassies and mansions, but it's worth a visit. Learning more about Wilson was very interesting through the video introduction and the tour. The house is almost completely original, from the furnishings to the wallpaper and...More

The Woodrow Wilson House struck me as almost more interesting as a period home than as the home of President Wilson, who lived in it for about two years. I was particularly taken with the kitchen implements and 1920s grocery items in the pantry. Pieces...More

Jon - I'm glad you found some items of interest at Wilson House but apologize for the lengthy tour. Tours are intended to last under one hour. We'll work on keeping our eye on the clock. Thanks!

We found this tour completely by surprise on groupon. We walked up from the metro station, took a stop at the Phillips collection (also awesome) and walked by many embassies on our way there. It made a very nice afternoon in Washington DC. The tour...More

We took the metro to Dupont Circle and walked along Embassy Row to get here. It’s about a twenty minute walk or so from the metro; but scenic with the embassies and architecture. If you are on this side of town I recommend touring Wilson’s...More
