Every American should pay homage here... But then again I'm a presidential library/museum enthusiast.

This is one of those must see places if you are in Nashville and have an interest in American history. It is a little out of town but you can use an Uber cab to get there.

The grounds and facilities at the Hermitage are beautifully kept. The visit is user friendly with short audios to match the numbers on your tour map. The docents are well informed and receptive to questions. The burial site is especially beautiful and conveys some personal insights into the man! Great opportunity to explore the historical side of Nashville. We are... More

Pleasantly surprised! We figured we'd spend an hour or so and then leave. We stayed 5 hours and could have stayed longer! Beautiful grounds. Lots to learn. We like history/museum places and this did not disappoint. I recommend doing the horse/buggy tour and the upgraded (Presidential) tour which gives you a better audio set and more information. Wear comfy shoes... More

Definitely worth a stop. The home is impressive but I was disappointed that no photography (even without flash) was allowed inside. Tour was brief and informative.

The grounds are beautiful, the house and history are great, but the best visit I have had there was their Haunted Halloween. It's a great step back in time and history lesson any day , but for more fun, go in October

Great museum area, which is followed by an audio device tour of the grounds. Learned a lot about President Jackson and his times. I guess it wasn't their fault that 700 schoolchildren were there the day we arrived, causing a somewhat long wait to get into the actual mansion. It was interesting how so much of the 1830's mansion is... More

Tip: Go EARLY and enjoy the gorgeous countryside here without so many other visitors. Tip: Admission does include the audio guide. No need to upgrade from that. Tip: If you are on a limited time schedule, skip the "museum" & the store. Do the outdoor tour which includes the "mansion" and slave quarters. Do the 20 minute video in the... More
