We toured this museum and it was simply wonderful! Our entire group was enthralled with the beautifully restored house and the info the guides gave us was extremely interesting. The entire tour lasts about an hour but it is well worth your time!

It was interesting to see what it was like for Woodrow Wilson when he was a boy and how seeing the prisoners of war in the churchyard where his father officiated helped form his attitudes in later years. These attitudes carried over to his presidency.

The house is immaculately preserved and tells the story of a young President Wilson and how his time at this location influenced his Presidential Policies while in office. A must see!

We thoroughly enjoyed the tour. The tour director used a great deal of knowledge about Woodrow Wilson to describe how he got his name and how he ended up as President of the US.

We knew very little about this president so it was good to learn more. Very smart man, well educated, and many other reasons to visit this home. It is always good to learn and everyone was pleased with our visit. Well worth the 4 dollars.

The price is $5 per person. It is less if you are a college student, military, or a senior citizen.
