  • The tour was not too expensive but was rather short; the woman at the museum was a tad racist and rude; the tour guide was not able to answer most of my questions- most of the artifacts in the “birthhouse” don’t belong to the Wilson family or are fake artifacts clearly the house has been renovated several times outside of the date period- the most interesting thing was a map from 1846 and an old clock...that still ticked. The gift shop guy was super polite and he’s the only reason I found it worth the chance to take the tour. The tour guide was supposed to start the tour with a video but the visitors from Ohio and I never saw it. Also- that was ten minutes worth of a tour I paid for. Overall it was a nice reminder that slaves were commonplace in a household and Staunton was super friendly to wealthy ministers like the Wilson family. I would suggest a walk around the exterior and nothing more. A high waste of time for a long journey. I will not be returning for another tour anytime soon or possibly ever.
  • What a disappointment. I expected a large library, but only got a gift shop and short video. This library is not federally funded, which indicates its minimalism, but it is misleading that this is even considered a library. Only one doing archival research on Pres. Wilson would benefit from its existence.
  • 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
  • Very nice place to visit. Enjoyed the guides.
