The tour guides at The Hermitage were all very informative and enthusiastic. They were all very good story tellers, and we enjoyed our tour very much. The gardens were lovely.

This is another great tour for history buffs. The Hermitage is obviously a place that has been carefully maintained over the years. The main house looks good enough to live in today but has clearly been preserved in a way that shows exactly what it looked like in Jackson's time. In looking at it, you can sense the tastefulness of... More

This is a great place to to learn a significant slice of our nation's history and what life was like for the people of the time. The museum and informational placards throughout as clear and informative. The grounds are beautifully maintained. The staff are pleasant, helpful and knowledgeable. They give excellent balance to the significance of slavery.

The Hermitage is well worth a visit. Make sure and see the video in the video in the visitor's center, it places everything in historical context. I would also recommend the additional wagon tour. You can see everything by walking, but the wagon tour guides added a lot more interesting information. The audio tour of the grounds was very helpful.... More

We spent most of the day at the Hermitage and on the grounds which were spectacular. The home and furnishings were in tip top shape. We were especially impressed by the original wallpaper and exquisite furnishings as well as personal items of the residents untouched by time. The tour guide stated that tours had been going on for the last... More

An interesting look at the life and times of President Jackson, a very popular President in his day, a little less well-known to the average person today. The guides were good at being honest about what is known and what is conjecture - it's actually amazing that we do lose track of everyday life after 150-200 years.

The Hermitage was Andrew Jackson home and it gives a lot of history just to walk thru see and learn the man, the president, and a Tennessean. You can see how he loved horses a the land in which he lived on outside the city limits, yet near BNA.
