I'm so happy you enjoyed the tour! Please note that the elevator is very narrow and only smaller wheelchairs will fit. We have a transfer chair available for those who are able to switch from larger wheelchairs. Happy Father's Day!

The tour was well planned. You do not need to know any history of Wilson because in the beginning of the tour, you will watch a brief video of the contributions Wilson made to the presidency and U.S. history. The tour guides are knowledgeable of...More
