First, good place to go with kids. Mine are 9 & 11. One is a history buff. The Hermitage does a nice job in their museum covering Jackson's rise to general and eventually to president. The house tour is wonderfully done. There's food, drink, and bathrooms available. Lots of room to wander, places to sit down, etc. I get that... More

A short tour of the actual home is interesting but limited for $17 for a senior. The grounds could occupy some walking time but not worth it The adjacent tour building is very commercially orientated as most of TN seems to be.

Absolutely beautiful, both inside and out, and chockfull of history. It is a shame a fairly recent tornado destroyed several stately old trees on the grounds. Not to be missed.

My son is getting married at the Hermitage and it is beautiful. The guide that took us around was so knowledgeable and knew EVERYTHING about weddings. We took a gold cart around to all of the cabins and churches. The facilities are awesome and provide everything that a bride could want. And the home provides gardens and landscape for lovely...

this is a nice tour to take when you visit Nashville. It is very interesting and has lots of very good information about the seventh president of United States. You can also take a carriage ride around the property for a little extra money and I found that to be worthwhile. The home itself is nice and you find out... More

Get there early enough to book the tour. You will walk through his estate and through different buildings. A little bit of a drive from downtown.

Was a very cold day in Nashville when we visited, so that made our tour of the outside a little shorter than normal! Loved the tour guides, all had excellent knowledge of the history, beautiful home and grounds very well kept. Very interesting to hear the history.

This place is great and a lot of history. If you have Junior High school children, this is a great history place for them to learn more about the civil war time. Take advantage of it.

This place is a true gem. They could easily charge more for the amount of museum you get. This place is in pristine condition and kept just the way Jackson had it because of excellent records kept by his son. A must visit, if you are in the area and have a few hours to learn some new stuff.
