STAUNTON, Va. (AP) — Dozens of visitors dropped by the Woodrow Wilson Presidential Library and Museum over the weekend to celebrate Wilson's 158th birthday.

Media outlets report that the library in Staunton reduced its admission price from $14 to $2 for a birthday celebration on Sunday.

The event included Victorian-era activities for children, presidential facts for history buffs, and Wilson re-enactor Judd Bankert.

Education curator Heather Sutton says Wilson was a humble man who likely wouldn't enjoy the fuss over him. But she believes he would be honored.

Wilson was born in Staunton.
