This Georgian-revival mansion offers guided hour-long tours focusing on the 28th president’s life and legacy. Genteel docents discuss highlights of Wilson’s career (WWI, the League of Nations) and home, which has been restored to the period of his residence (1921–24). The tour features European bronzes, a stairwell conservatory, exquisite china and Mrs W's flapper dresses, all of which offer a glamorous portrait of Roaring ‘20s DC society.

The docents’ entertaining stories spread beyond the Wilson house: they can point out the rich eccentrics and ambassadors who live nearby and give you directions to the Clintons’ Georgian Colonial pad about a mile up the road.
