I really enjoyed this but the rest of my family was just so-so on it. It's a beautiful old house. They do a good job with the audio tour, and they have a separate program for the kids to listen to, and they did enjoy that. I thought that the history about Andrew Jackson was a little too politically correct... More

This is very educational. The gardens and area around the house are beautiful. They have an audio tour that is included in your fee and I really liked listening to all the information and stories that was shared.

This was a last minute decision to stop and visit as my sons 8th grade teacher challeneged anyone who visited Nashville to visit this home ... we thought it would be a nice walk and a little history for the kids before school started. Unfortunately, we never went in or got to see the house as it was too expensive... More

I say 'hidden' because it is off the beaten path and not real visible. Well worth the drive out to visit the estate, walk the grounds, take a buggy ride around the acreage, have a great little lunch in the cafe, shop and just enjoy being on this wonderful, historical site. Whether you are a fan of President Jackson or... More

In order to enliven the relatively dull prospect of a tour of the house and gardens - nice enough, but nothing to write home about - the museum, tour guides and audio tour have chosen to concentrate on the saccharine love story between Andrew Jackson and his wife. Unfortunately, this is not a tale of wild romance or forbidden love,... More

The staff were very friendly and knowledgable-enjoyed that you could explore the ground at your own pace. Had to leave stroller outside of the home but could take it everywhere else.

This was a great learning experience. Lots of great information - guides, movies, displays, landmarks, self guided information, museum! It offers a little bit of everything. Lots of walking so wear comfortable shoes. Great experience.

We took the audio tour of Andrew Jackson's home and farm. It was very interesting and very informative. With the audio headset we were able to go at our own pace and the information at each stop was good.

I like this type of tour so I was very happy with the house ... but what touched me the most was the story of our president and the love he shared with his wife. Theirs was quite a love story , from the painting of her placed where he would see it first thing everyday, to the garden where... More
