Interesting history. Make sure to do the guided house tour as well as walking around the exhibits. The town of stauton itself is charming and well worth a day trip or weekend stay

Thomas Woodrow Wilson's Birthplace and Library are very much worth a visit. Though not large, the Museum manages to introduce some facts about this President which are not commonly known. Kids and automobile enthusiasts will enjoy seeing Wilson's Pierce-Arrow.

Great story of a President and his humble beginnings in Staunton, VA. Background on his years at Princeton and later the Governor of NJ before becoming President.
