Seeing history is believing . Excellent preservation of Andrew Jackson's home and adjoining structures. Be sure to tour the house for the full effect. Wear your tennis shoes. Be cognizant of weather, most of time spent outside walking land: slaves homes, beautiful gardens with cemetery, guitar shaped driveway

Well worth a visit. Lovely gardens and a well preserved house. Very informative guides who have lots of stories and information about the family. Small restaurant and gift shop are also available. Easy to reach and well signposted.

I drive by this historic place every summer at least once. What a beautiful place. It is like seeing American history splashed right into your face. I plan to go back and do a more in depth visit soon.

A great experience throughout. Take I-40 exit 221 and turn northbound on Tennessee Road 265. Eventually TN 265 turns into TN 45. You will pass by a Home Depot on your right, as well as a Starbucks and a Famous Dave's BBQ (all close to one another, all on the right). As you cross U.S. Highway 70, look for signs... More

Loved the self-guided audio tour where you punched in a number and listened to the history of the Hermitage. You can listen to Rachel or Andrew's perspective. There is also a kids tour that uses kid friendly language. The docents were well informed and the house is beautiful as well as air conditioned. The grounds are beautiful. You will want... More

Enjoyed visiting this historical mansion. The grounds are beautiful. The home itself is grand. I was surprised to see the trap door where apparently the slaves were sometimes kept ( according to a guide).

We visited The Hermitage on a very hot July afternoon. The staff was friendly and informative and the facility was nicely maintained. I was disappointed in some of the narrative on Jackson as a slave owner. One of the bits ask if Jackson was a good slave owner and the answer was that there was no such thing as a... More

If you are into history or just want to see what life was like during President Andrew Jacksons time, this is a must see! A very well done museum, visitors center, and above all the most original and complete collection of original appointments, furniture, architecture, and buildings. Not just time period correct, but President Jacksons actual possessions. Very impressive!

There are different levels of tours, the General's Tour seemed to fit our needs best. You enter a very well designed walking tour museum where the history of life of Gen Jackson is elegantly displayed. There is the private coach, swords, weapons and various artifacts to read about. The audio phones are helpful as you leave the museum and reach... More
