A fantastic old home for a National hero and our seventh president. They have done a great job restoring and presenting the home and grounds.

We had been here years ago and find it much improved with the addition of a museum at the visitor's center. There is a video biography of Andrew Jackson that is a good starting point, then a museum that follows his life with explanatory panels, some interactive videos (my favorite was the battle of New Orleans played out in four...

I had done a few tours first such as Belle mead plantation . Was allowed to walk into every room and ask question about things you see in the rooms . At this attraction you have to look into the rooms from the hall ways .Because there is glass over them to protect the era pieces ( understandable ) .... More

A most interesting lesson in history. Nice musuem near ticket purchase area, then short walk up to the "house". Amazing that so much of the original furniture and decorations have been maintained as a whole. The tour guides were most knowledgable. For much of this year military (active and retired) get in free and spouses get discount. Nice that the... More

It was a day with nothing better to do.... Was in Nashville for business, as I am often, and the day's schedule opened up. I had visited just about every other site and attraction in Nashville, and it was a decent day, so we decided to drive out to the Hermitage and check it out. I'm a bit of a... More

After our neighbors encouraged us to go visit the Hermitage, we made it a stop on our trip to Nashville. The grounds, as well as the buildings, are well preserved & the tour guides are very knowledgeable & eager to answer all questions. The history behind Andrew Jackson's beliefs, views on slavery & his deep love for his wife Rachel... More

Beautiful home, the grounds are absolutely breathtaking, I just wish they would allow you to take pictures inside the mansion.

For all you American History buffs, the Hermitage is a great place to visit. It's a little pricey, but you can spend almost an entire day here walking all over the grounds. There are several buildings, plus a video, and lots of artifacts. If you're fortunate, there may even be local elementary and middle school children acting as junior docents... More

This historic home is a great representation of life in early days of Nashville. Perfectly restored and very educational. Andrew Jackson was a great president and leader of our early years. Highly recommend this piece of history for any visitor to Nashville.
