Washington National Cathedral Washington D.C.

President Wilson is buried off to the side of the main part of the cathedral. The best way to get to his grave is when you first enter the cathedral, !!!!DON'T FOLLOW THE SIGNS THAT SAY CRYPT!!!!" I did this and I got lost and made it to the gift shop. There will be a desk when you enter there will be a person selling tickets for a audio tour of the cathedral. Enter the doors behind the desk. You will enter where there are all of the state flags. Take a right and go up the hallway that is on the right. The person I asked took me right to his grave and it was about 2/3 of the way up of this little hallway. When I was at the National Cathedral, there was a church service going on. So don't be surprised if you here a church service going on. You can still go and see President Wilson even if there is a church service going on.
