There is so much to see in this little town. The tour is fascinating. Wilson was one of the worst presidents we ever had and here you get to learn his beginnings.

Cost of admission includes guided tour of birth home as well as entrance to museum. We got there just in time for the 2:45 p.m. tour (next one was at 4), so we only caught bits and pieces of the overview film (which is captioned.)...More

This attraction was on my PUblic Broadcasting Members' llist, so my friend and I had 2-for-1 admission. There is a wealth of aartifacts and a friendly, well-educated staff who make the visit a trully satisfying experience.

We visited on Woodrow Wilson's birthday so admission was free but crowds were probably larger than usual. Our tour guide, Caleb, did an excellent job. His knowledge of the life and times of Woodrow Wilson obviously extended beyond what he was able to tell us...More

We saw Woodrow Wilson's Birthplace listed on an area map and stopped by to see what we could learn about this former president. The home has been restored and the guided tour was very informative about life at that time and Woodrow Wilson's family story....More
