Knew nothing of President Jackson's time on this earth. One of the highlights of the estate tour was having young children actually give you historical information along the walk to the mansion. Loved the staff in period clothing.

To be able to see the inside of a US Presidents house is always a treat and helps us better understand our history. Great grounds.

Love history and the Hermitage is perfect for exploring the 19th century, especially before the Civil War. We were greeted by a gentleman in authentic clothing of the period and taken on a guided tour of the mansion. After the leaving the mansion, 4th grade school children, also in authentic clothing, told us about their particular part of the Hermitage,... More

I learned a lot about Andrew Jackson and thought this was an above average tour. Most of it was self-guided, except for when you go into Jackson's home. One of the workers said 90% of what is in the home is original but when other group members asked if certain objects were original, most of the time they said "no".... More

We visited in May 2015 (husband/wife) and this was one of the first things (other than have lunch in Nashville) that we did upon arrival. I (the wife) do most of the trip planning and research and this was one thing my husband asked to do during our plane ride that morning. We arrived around 1

If you like history, this is the place for you to visit. Amazing that they have acquired and maintained the original furnishing and event the original 1800s wallpaper! The grounds were beautiful. We spent over two hours there and could have spent more!

Well preserved and good overview of southern life in the early 19th century. We opted to add on the wagon ride around the grounds which really gave you a better peek into the lives of the Jackson's slaves.

What a great surprise we received when we visited here in May. School children from area schools had been taught bits of information about the Hermitage to be mini-docents. They were polite and respectful and well-behaved. We understand from other friends who visited on other days that this seems to be the norm for one week in May each year.... More

We went to the hermitage for our cousin's wedding and it was absolutely beautiful. They got married in the chapel and it was really neat.
