Wilson's presidency was important and the museum provided a good deal of information in a fairly small space through pictures and text on the walls. Not a high tech operation, but worth doing. Ladies at the desk were ready to answer any questions and provide...More

President Wilson's home was very modest as was the library. The 2 best things was his car and the basement where WW1 was re-elected in a bunker. It was very realistic. I didn't stay for the tour of the home. Beautiful Historical neighborhood.

We have visited all of the “official” (National Archives) libraries/museums of the more recent presidents. They are interesting, to be sure, but the facilities devoted to earlier presidents are also interesting and very engaging. The Woodrow Wilson is among the better in the latter category....More

Interesting history. Make sure to do the guided house tour as well as walking around the exhibits. The town of stauton itself is charming and well worth a day trip or weekend stay

Thomas Woodrow Wilson's Birthplace and Library are very much worth a visit. Though not large, the Museum manages to introduce some facts about this President which are not commonly known. Kids and automobile enthusiasts will enjoy seeing Wilson's Pierce-Arrow.
