  • Didn't take the tour, hope to return for it though. Beautiful street and enjoyed admiring the outside of the 3 buildings. I have a feeling parking is difficult to find during the busy season.
  • Admittedly Wilson tried and did manage to complete some noteworthy achievements such as convincing Congress to declare war on Germany after the Kaiser tried to get Mexico to declare war on the United States and his idea of a League of Nations to prevent future wars, but there is no mention of Wilson's anti-anybody except white Anglo-Saxon protestants (WASPs) policies, especially non-white minorities.
  • Memorial Day weekend was a great time to take a tour of the birthplace of a progressive and intellectual US president who ushered our nation into the Great War. The home is nicely prepared, with a 20 minute tour of two floors, with a few items from the family Wilson including baby Thomas' crib. The museum's written history is fairly confusing in its chronological presentation, but nonetheless enjoyable. The walk in the garden was a highlight, as the sculptured terraces and mature plantings took me back in time.
  • decent tour of childhood house.Very good tour guide.Museum a bit minimal with respect to Wilson.Highlight is his car!Leaves out a lot on his history particularly the negative aspects.
  • Not only interesting but these people opened the museum for a private tour when they were closed. Talk about southern hospitality!
