  • It takes several buildings two explain the life and achievements of President Woodrow Wilson. This Museum was founded by Staunton locals and receives no federal support. It was the beginning of a good idea that Congress picked up on. There is much to learn and enjoy. Be sure to enjoy the gardens and The View in the fall and the spring
  • Tour guide was knowledgeable and friendly. The house was well done and the tour was long enough to be interesting enough for adults and hold the attention of a 5, 9, and 14 year old. The scavenger hunt in the museum was quick and fun. The town was beautiful. Great place to visit
  • Fantastic! Very well presented. Also loved the tour.
  • 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.
  • We had a wonderful time and learned a lot. The guides were very knowledgeable and the Man at the gift shop was very kind.
