Wonderful house with very knowledgeable host. Can take pictures inside which is a rarity. Certainly worth seeing if you have the time. I went around Christmas and got to see the decorations.

Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and made the tour very interesting. My mom and I love looking at older homes with all the beautiful antique furnishings. This home did not disappoint.

The Boyhood Home of President Woodrow Wilson has gone from ruin to beautifully renovated over the last 25 years. It is beautifully restored, complete with period furniture, and often quietly secluded. The Docent, Mrs. H., is a wealth of information about the home, the life of the Wilsons and the history of the period. In addition, the home is located... More

It was already closed before we got there. It did look neat, and we would go back to do the tour, but make sure you go early and check the hours before going. It was not hard to find. It was on Tripadvisor, as well as a brochure we picked up at a tourist visitor's center.

Our guide made this a very enjoyable visit. Though Wilson lived here as a youth with his family, a number of things in the house were there when the Wilsons lived here. Also, some items were donated back by other owners. The stories of the boy and how this part of his life shaped his future views is presented vey... More

The docent was well prepared and friendly. The video is excellent. Tour is not that long, so great to visit if you are running short on time.

Woodrow Wilson only lived there 10 years...seems hardly not right that now it's a money maker attraction. So we did not pay to go in but looked at what seemed to be a very modern home! The bullet holes in the window were fascinating! LOL. Fun to see b/c of who he was... and just right there in the city!

We took the last tour of the day at 4 p.m. There were just three of us on a Friday afternoon. It starts with a 12 minute video on Woodrow Wilson which I found quite interesting. Then the docent took us next door to the actual home and kitchen which is in another building. Overall was enjoyable, interesting and well... More
