The Woodrow Wilson House struck me as almost more interesting as a period home than as the home of President Wilson, who lived in it for about two years. I was particularly taken with the kitchen implements and 1920s grocery items in the pantry. Pieces...More

We found this tour completely by surprise on groupon. We walked up from the metro station, took a stop at the Phillips collection (also awesome) and walked by many embassies on our way there. It made a very nice afternoon in Washington DC. The tour...More

We took the metro to Dupont Circle and walked along Embassy Row to get here. It’s about a twenty minute walk or so from the metro; but scenic with the embassies and architecture. If you are on this side of town I recommend touring Wilson’s...More

This is the only presidential museum in DC (so our tour guide told us). We had the most informative tour from Kelsy, who told us wonderful stories as we walked throughout the house. Learned a lot about Wilson as the president and about his personal...More

While waiting for the tour, it was neat to walk through the neighborhood! Interesting tour about President Wilson and his time before and after the Presidency. Neat to see the various rooms throughout the home! Well worth the stop if in the area.

Staying in the Dupont Circle Hotel we were only a short walk away so it seemed only right and proper to make a visit. At $10 ($8 for seniors) it's a snip. Our guide was a little uncertain about some of the contents and historical...More

Glad you enjoyed your visit. But luckily we are not the only presidential museum in DC: Lincoln's Cottage is not to be missed. We are happy to be in such great company!

Located among the embassies in the Kalorama neighborhood near Dupont Circle, the Wilson House is where the 28th president and his second wife lived from 1921 until his death in 1924 (and hers in 1961). An understated, early 20th century home, it has been kept...More
