My friend and I had a great visit to the home of Andrew Jackson. Although the gardens were dormant, the grounds were beautiful with fall color. I enjoyed the tour of the house, and the guides overall had good working knowledge of the house, but a lot of historical details were missed. I read later the glasses on the table... More

We always travel with a dog so when I opted to visit The Hermitage (which I believe is owned by the State of Tennessee), my wife graciously agreed to stay in the car with our dog. There was a line to get into the house so I passed on that and walked around the grounds. The house did not appear... More

A great tour, you can imaging the life back then. This home rivals the plantation mansions in Louisiana. The grounds are beautiful.

Well worth anyone's time. US History is preserved as the early 1800's through the Civil War in on display. Extremely well guided with Gen/President Andrew Jackson's home as it was when he lived there.

Had a interesting time visiting the home of Andrew Jackson. The house tour was enjoyable and packed with information the grounds are pleasant for strolling. Jackson was a very interesting man and this tour will give you a good understanding of his life. The movie at the museum was very informative. Visited in the winter season, assuming the gardens are... More

My husband and I visited here in Oct and loved it. We paid extra for the horse drawn carriage ride and after that, walked around on our own and explored and got more detail. The grounds ar beautiful and it was interesting for us to learn more about Andrew Jackson and his family. I highly recommend - we spend about... More

We visited on a rainy day so we couldn't enjoy the grounds but I think its worth a visit since it is part of history. If you've visited other president's home this is more of the same. If you can't fit it into your itinerary I wouldn't worry about it.

This is a top notch attraction with a fantastic visitor center, cafe and store, but let's not forget that the house and grounds were incredible. The house is well kept and the grounds are beautiful and vast. Definitely should be on the top of your list.

I found this an interesting stop while in town for a convention. We only had a few hours. Be aware they are doing some significant renovations right now and part of the museum exhibits in the visitors center are closed because of that. There is a lot of outdoor walking so make sure you dress appropriately and wear your sneakers!

It was raining hard and the temperature was in the 40's and while I had not brought an umbrella, still forced myself to see the points of interest on the grounds and still had a worthwhile visit. But it is the interior of the house that makes this a great place to visit. So much of the decoration is authentic... More
