We were disappointed that you could not see into the rooms. The plastic over the doorway should have been a little further into the rooms to allow better viewing. Too many people allowed on tour which made it harder to see or spend time viewing. Very expensive for what we got out of it.

This was a great place to visit! The house itself is really something to see. Also wandering about outside fascinating! It just filled with history,also if weather permits you will be able to take a buggy ride.

This is a very interesting museum and plantation. Interesting artifacts inside but walk around the gardens to his house. Docents are dressed in the style of the times. Lots of walking but you can just walk to house and graveside.

After spending the weekend in Nashville, we stopped here on our way out. The tour was typical, but we enjoyed taking the wagon tour of the grounds the best.

Excellent view into the nation's past. We learned a lot about Jackson in the museum. The gardens were beautiful and the docents were well-informed.
