  • A visit here is highly recommended. It captures Wilson's life and presidency very nicely - a nice, brief tour of his birthplace, and then an informative guided tour of the museum. I wasn't aware of Wi...  more »

  • Museum has a lot of things about a possibly not as well known President. Tour if his birthplace was nice. The self-guided tour of the museum is good. The only issue I see with it is that the chronology depicted in the descriptions or posters is not linear and hard to follow. A little more separation of his personal and professional life would possibly help too. The restored Pierce-Arrow limo is amazing and it is a shame that one can't get a little closer to it...I am a bit of a gearhead. Overall though, the museum is nicely done and Staunton is a beautiful town to visit. It was well worth the day trip.
  • Our guide was very knowledgeable, interesting and courteous. I would definitely plan to do the house tour.
  • Nice museum a little small keep in mind the house was his boyhood home for about 1 1/2 years.
  • The tour was full of info seemed to know their facts it's kind short but definitely worth the visit
  • Very informative.....really enjoyed my visit!
