Specialty Museum
President Wilson offered a vision of the world at peace and a plan for achieving that vision. Nearly a century later, President Wilson’s challenge remains unfulfilled.

The President Woodrow Wilson House gives a special glimpse into the private life of Woodrow Wilson while preserving his important legacy for future generations. After serving as the twenty-eighth President of the United States, where he led the nation through World War I, won the Nobel Peace Prize and created the League of Nations, Woodrow Wilson moved to S Street in 1921 to reflect on his career as educator, president and world statesman.

  • Great and interesting historical landmark. The staff is kind and the guided tour very pleasant. I had a great time and I recommend the visit!
  • Well preserved home that offers a unique view into Wilson's life. Definitely worth a visit
  • Wilson was a ... problematic president to say the least. But a fascinating snapshot of American history and a fascinating house.
  • After having been to numerous presidential homes, I can honestly say this is one of my favorites. The house is located near the historic embassay row and the walk to the house was interesting on its own. And then there is the house. First off, there was no else besides my family and I at this historical gem, so if you're looking to avoid the tourist traps and see some history, this is your place. Like I said earlier, I have been to many presidential homes. Most of them contain reproductions of house items or just period pieces. However, in this house almost everything is original, including the pen Woodrow Wilson used to sign the WWI declaration of war. The tour was interesting and informative and I came away with a new respect for Woodrow Wilson. I'd recommend this for anyone interested in Woodrow Wilson or history.
  • We received a group guided tour through the house. The guide was extremely well informed about Woodrow Wilson, his two wives, and of course the house. The house is fully furnished with Woodrow Wilson's actual furniture, and looks just as it was when he lived there after his presidency. We learned so much about this president, his times and accomplishments. The house is beautiful, and as others have said, it is in a beautiful neighborhood.
