The Woodrow Wilson House is a national historic landmark and house museum that focuses on President Wilson’s “Washington Years”. The museum promotes a greater awareness of Wilson’s public life and ideals for future generations through guided tours, exhibition and educational programs. The museum also serves as a community preservation model and resource, dedicated to the stewardship and presentation of an authentic collection and property.

The Woodrow Wilson House is a property of the National Trust for Historic Preservation, a privately funded, non-profit corporation, helping people protect, enhance and enjoy the places that matter to them.
