Took our daughter to her favorite presidents house finally. The house is very well preserved. The historians are wonderful story tellers about the house and President Jackson. We took the carriage ride tour and the lady that did that really knew about the property. I think the best part was picking some cotton from a little patch they had grown... More

Go during warm weather if you can I imagine it's much more enjoyable that way. That being said I visited on a 30 degree day and still had a great time. I opted for the basic tour which include audio and an in person tour of the Mansion. The staff is great, the history is interesting and the ground are... More

The tour was very informational. The tour guides of the house had great stories to share. You toured the grounds on your own but had headphones for an audio tour. We also did the carriage ride for a grounds tour and learned some great history.

Was afraid this might not be terribly exciting, but went anyway since we were in the area. The visitor's center was pretty typical for a place like this -- large storyboard type displays with some artifacts in chronological order. We had the self-guided tour with listening device. I was SUPER impressed to find there was a KIDS version to listen... More

I would go during warm months. It's a nice place, but I can't imagine going more than once or twice. Lots of history to be had.

We got what we paid for. It was free for veterans the day we visited. We rented the aduido tour. That was Ok looks like the site needs docents, not much to see or do except tour the house, might enjoy a picnic there on a nice day. They were setting up for a haunting for the Halloween weekend, so... More

We didn't get a chance to see any of the property but, the security guard was wonderfully helpful and full of information. It snowed this morning and "people can't get to work because of the weather". He told us it's quite a bit of walking outside around the property and you can leave the property and return all day if... More

Very happy that we decided to visit this Historical Museum. Most of the home is original. The staff are very friendly. The museum is filled with so much history and interesting facts that you wanted to go back and walk it again to make sure you didn't miss anything. The tour guides were excellent. The plantation itself was beautiful. Very... More

Hermitage appears to be a bit of a draw - the day we were there, we saw license plates from at least ten states. The weather was warm for the time of year, and it was easy to walk around the grounds, listening to the audio tour (which was included in the cost of admission, unlike at Mount Vernon, where...

It is a lovely estate but the audio tour devices they provide have some glitches and you can find yourself trying to master the technology rather than enjoying the property. (We are techno lovers so if they were glitchy for us...) The house is lovely but the rooms are blocked off by plexi-glass - look but don't touch - but... More
