This is a fantastic way to spend a day if you are visiting Nashville. The home of old Hickory is in beautiful condition and you get a wonderful idea what plantation life was like during pre-civil war times. The house guides are friendly and knowledgeable. They love to answer questions, The artifacts are real and incredibly interesting. I must tell... More

The house and grounds of this mansion was also interesting although the rooms here as opposed to Belle Meade had a barrier so we could not go in. The gardens were beautiful as was the wall paper in the hallway but the staff was much more particular about touching or going near anything. This was also a noteworthy tour not... More

This was well worth the $ if you like history. My husband and I toured the museum and plantation/house and spent a total of 4 hrs, it was really great. Learned alot about Andrew Jackson that I never knew before. With our AAA discount it was about $17 per ticket. A definite must see when you are in the Nashville... More

Every time we come to Nashville, we visit with the General and Rachel. This was our 4th or 5th time. We always enjoy the visit! Love the house tour and garden!

If you appreciate history, you can't visit Nashville without touring President Andrew Jackson's plantation. As with many plantations such as this, you should expect to do lots of walking. But the property and tours seem well-organized and laid out. We did the audio tour and the routes were well marked. All the tour guides seemed very well informed on the... More

Amazing estate, cute museum, lovely home... We had the audio guides and my kids listened to the kids audio guide (parrot speaking) and really enjoyed it. Well worth a... More
