The Wilson House
The former home of the 28th US President Woodrow Wilson, this is DC's only Presidential museum which gives a glimpse into his life and legacy. Its collection of over 8,000 artifacts features items from Wilson's administration, objects from the White House, gifts of state from abroad, and family heirlooms. Additionally the house serves as a perfect backdrop for visitors wishing to be transported back into 1920s America - from sound recordings to flapper dresses and zinc sinks.
