We have visited a number of Presidential Libraries. The Woodrow Wilson library gets no federal funding and so isn't on the same scale as many more modern presidents. But Woodrow Wilson did some very interesting and lasting things during his presidency. So it was exciting...More

I was in Staunton for a conference and extended my stay for a day to visit the Wilsom birthplace and the Wilson Presidential Library. Both the birthplace and the library were informative. As one might expect, President Wilson was presented in a (very) favorable light...More

We toured the library/museum on our own and then had a guided tour of Woodrow Wilson's early childhood home. Tour guide did an excellent job. Always interesting to learn about a President's humble roots.

There is admission but you learn a lot about daily life when he was a child and his contributions to American history. The docents are knowledable and answer all your questions...do not miss the adjoining building to the house!
