My parents, my husband and I visited The Hermitage on a rainy day in October and were really glad we did. The house and the grounds are beautiful and I am so glad that I could visit history.

This was a great property to visit. The grounds are lovely and the house well-preserved. Some of the guides are better than others. We also took the horse-drawn carriage ride around the property and that was interesting and fun to get to see more of the grounds in a limited time-period.

My husband and I spent three hours at The Hermitage. We used our AAA membership which gave us $2 discount on both of our tickets. We opted to take the wagon tour which costs an additional $11 each, but we enjoyed it and were glad to have the information supplied by the driver. We learned a lot about the 8th... More

Great place to help visualize some info gleaned from reading a biography of Andrew Jackson. We enjoyed walking the property in the fall.

Part of our Civil War road trip, visiting the home of Andrew Jackson was extremely informative. Great museum, knowledgable guides and grounds a pleasure to walk through. Don't miss the gravesite. Many flowers still in blloom in September.

This house was great to see although hard because they put glass on the doorways so you can only look in which means you can't see around corners. You cant actually go into any of the rooms. He had a lot of land though and you get to walk around that as well. It was great to hear all of... More

Interesting tour of the mansion of Andrew Jackson. Well restored buildings and knowledgeable tour staff. I was however left wondering about his role in slavery. We experienced Jackson's story in a brief movie of his life, a tour of the mansion and audio recordings/tour of his property. It was truthfully said that Jackson was a slave owner who when he...

Visited the Hermitage this past weekend, and although the base admission fee ($17) is a little high (especially without any add-ons), it was still a good way to spend the morning, presuming the weather is nice. Much of the appeal is the grounds, since the tour of the house only takes about 20 minutes. The tour guides were WONDERFUL in... More

We decided to take in this tour, and it was one of the best tours we had seen ever, the buggy ride was very well done and informative during the ride throughout out the plantation. It's a must thing to take in, we went there at 11:20, and we were done by 4:30, and the time seemed to fly by.... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to President Jacksons home. Unfortunately for us, the museum was closed for renovation. It was a good size walk from the museum area to the home. We noticed they had a golf cart to transport people who had difficulty walking. . The guides knew their history and were eager to answer questions. ..The home is... More
