Awesome place !!

This was worth the 20.00 to visit. We arrived at 8:30 am & went at our own place. Staff was friendly & knowledgeable. A nice step back in time.

You people are holding history hostage for the rich and affluent. This is simply not in a blue collar family budget!

Oh a lovely place to visit. It must have been grand to live in this house. It contains many old pieces from the time and some that even belonged to the Jacksons.

Who would want to pass up a visit to the home of Andrew Jackson? Our tour was a bit disjointed because the group in front of us was bogged down. We got rushed through, but still was o.k. The wagon trip is a must.

This is definitely a place to visit when in Nashville. The self guided tour was good. Perfect weather for a stroll around the grounds. The home and grounds were with seeing.

This was my first visit to the south and I wanted to be sure to see some historical sites. The tour of The Hermitage includes a museum, house tour and grounds tour. This is a great stop for the history buff.

Staff here have history off to a T. Impressive plantation grounds and gardens and, since this is the south, slave quarters. Access is fairly straightforward and is well signed on approach roads. Definitely worth a cisit

I walked the grounds on my own, and it felt like I was stepping back in time. I walked down to the spring house. Lovely!

History is not always pleasant. Jackson was a controversial figure, but the museum does not gloss over his faults (killing Indians, keeping slaves). A great glimpse into a time gone by.
