“great tour and grounds.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2012

We spent at least a half a day here and it was worth it. The tour of the mansion was incredibly informative and the audio tour filled in the gaps and described various sites on the grounds. This is a big property so set aside enough time to stroll through the gardens, listen to the audio and take the mansion tour.

“Beautiful grounds and a balanced look at the man”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2012

A museum for well over 100 years, this home is fortunate to contain original Jackson items. The audio tour is interesting and the grounds in the fall are gorgeous. You truly feel that you have stepped back in time.

“Enjoyable and Informative”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

The school children added to our experience in visiting this historical home. The guides were wonderful and answered our questions readily. The admission price was a little steep, but it was worth the time spent.
