Visited the birth place next door and this is a great addition to visit. Good amount of history and background of the time and his Presidency. Also well maintained.

I just love visiting presidential museums, libraries and homesteads. The Wilson homestead and museum will not disappoint the history buff. Interesting but not great. Stop by for an afternoon if you are in the area.
