    Our Favorite Mansion Tour in Nashville
    We began our second full day in Nashville by visiting Belmont Mansion on the property of Belmont University. Although the estate originally consisted of 180 acres, the mansion is all that remains of it. That said, it was my favorite of the 3 mansions that we toured in Nashville. We loved the tour! In 1849, after the death of her husband, the infamous slave trader Isaac Franklin who bequeathed his slave-trading fortune to her, the extremely wealthy widow Adelicia (Hayes) Franklin married Joseph Alexander Smith Acklen, a young attorney from Alabama. They built Belmont Mansion, also known as Acklen Hall, and originally known as Belle Monte, Belle Mont or Belmont to serve as the center of their summer estate in what was then country outside the city, and featured elaborate gardens and a zoo. It was completed by 1853 as an Italian villa-style summer home. They lived the rest of the year on one of her seven Louisiana cotton slave plantations, which totaled 8,600 acres. Today the mansion is owned by the Belmont Mansion Association and Belmont University and is operated and preserved by the Belmont Mansion Association. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1971. Parking was free but vehicles had to be registered. I did this online the evening before but one could also do so at the door. You will need to know your license plate number.

    Very interesting look into the past
    This is an interesting mansion to visit to get a glimpse into the past. Lots of effort is and has been made to restore the mansion. Worth a look.

    A Look Into Greed
    Very interesting and or guide was great. He was so informative. Wow, what a crazy family that owned this house. Not gonna tell you anymore, you need to go hear it for yourself. Also, don't pass up the gift shop. Was surprised how reasonable their prices were. Ended up going around the block to the UPS store to ship a purchase home. LOL

    A Gem! Worth taking the time for a tour.
    This gem was nestled on the Belmont University campus, which is quite charming. While it did not impact us, the parking lot is small, so make sure you have a plan B for parking. We took a guided tour of the mansion from Hunter. He was very informative, engaging, and he had a nice sense of humor. He did well answering questions from members of the tour group. I think a good docent can make or break a tour, so I was glad to have this positive experience with Hunter. The mansion is beautiful with lots of interesting decor and architectural detail. The family stories and history associated with the mansion are fascinating. This is a piece of Nashville history worth checking out!

    Making Memories with my son
    My son and I enjoyed our time so much. My 13-year-old son has aspirations of being an architect and I love Home design and color. We loved admiring the beautiful architecture and wallpaper. Making this a regular thing.

    Fascinating insight into history of Nashville
    This visit was incredible. Thank you to Greg the amazing tour guide. When considering what to do when I was in Nashvillle I found that a lot of the popular tourist attractions were a long coach journey away. I opted out of that and instead chose my visits by distance - and fortunately Belmont Mansion was only ten minutes walk from where I was staying. I got lucky! What a find. The Mansion is beautiful and steeped in history. Usually I choose not to follow tour guides but I chose to book a tour in advance and I am so pleased that I did. Greg was knowledgable and interesting and it was an absolute pleasure having him explain the history of the house and the family who lived there.

    Definitely a must to see on a guided tour! Very reasonably priced!
    Absolutely best guide ever. House was lavish but the historian helped guests understand house, culture & family during the turbulent time of Civil War. Staff went out of their way to help us when we had to reschedule our tour due to an accident two days prior. Definitely worth seeing! One of the best gift shops I’ve encountered!

    Beautiful Renovation
    Beautiful renovation of a very historic mansion. The tour guide was energetic and very informative. Don't forget to stop by the GIG (Gallery of Iconic Guitars) located a short walk away.

My boyfriend and I visited in Feb 2021. We are history nerds so we were excited to see a beautiful home and learn some local history. This is the first house museum we visited in the South so we were eager to hear how history was interpreted.

The guides/workers were gracious and friendly. Our guide (Gail, Gabby? Sorry, don’t remember exactly) was a great story teller and was able to answer my boyfriend’s complicated questions. The home itself was beautiful and the gift shop has a nice variety of items. One of the rooms was in a “pre-renovation” state so we hope to visit again when that is finished.

My husband & I visited this house while in Nashville to tour Cheekwood, Belle Meade, and the Hermitage (all reviewed separately). This is a beautiful house with lovely furnishings. No timed tickets are required, making it easy to stop by as time allows. We had no trouble finding it or a parking spot in their small lot. This house has a lovely setting on the campus of Belmont University. After receiving an introduction to the house and its history by a friendly docent, we were allowed to walk through the house on our own. Each room has an informative placard about the room and its furnishings (although I did find them hard to read due to small text and general low lighting). I was amazed to see the same wallpaper in the mistress’s bedroom that we had seen in the foyer at Andrew Jackson’s The Hermitage the very day before. It took us a leisurely hour to see everything. The admission for seniors ($18 each) seemed a bit high for a self-guided tour, but we were happy to support the site.

We did the trolley tour early in the week and listen about the history of this mansion.

Staff was awesome and enjoyed all of the history about the mansion. Anyone that loves history of a area and the orginal findings inside the house would love this tour.

The Belmont Mansion is worth every dollar of the admission cost. We all had a fantastic time there… the beautiful grounds and taking pics of each other by the fountain and the trees, to the gift shop, to the seemingly endless mansion itself. It is a self guided tour but the staff gives a terrific overview of the mansion and it’s history that is not too long, not too short. I would go again, it was so interesting and fun to check it all out. I would love to go in the evening if they ever have tours in the evening, next time.

The mansion is beautiful. Everyone was very nice and informative except for the girl guarding upstairs. She followed us around like we were children going to mess with things. Never said a word, so very creepy and annoying. Parking is at the school visitors lot that is very small and there is a hike to the mansion but it was a beautiful day and very nice. Work is being done in the house so there is a room or two that is unavailable. Would love to see it again once finished. Not sure if there is a guided tour (it would be very short) but that would be nice and if the workers there dresses up in the time period would have set the tone as well. There is plenty to read and try to get a feel of how it was lived in. What was available to view didn't make it seem like a mansion just a small house. I really do hate they closed off so much.

This mansion is better than the Hermitage and Belle Meade (we did see all 3). The docents here really know their stuff and could answer any and every question about the history and the family. The story of the female owner is an amazing story; worthy of a movie. Just a fascinating history and a unique property.

You are greeted warmly at the door and ushered in for a brief history lesson on the origin of this beautiful place and the woman that had it built. You are then free to roam and view the many different rooms in the Belmont Mansion. Guides are placed in each room, eager to answer any questions. Many works of art can be found in all the rooms, so you are seeing much more than period furniture. The grounds are lovely and this mansion is part of Belmont University. All the guides were very friendly and knowledgeable.

A beautiful Antebellum Mansion, great furnishing, interesting history about the owners of this house. The gift shop is lovely. So much history in Nashville. Some renovations to the front of the house were on, which are needed also for some parts of the inside.

This was an amazing historical home. The docents were very knowledgeable and loved sharing information. Even the non-history buffs enjoyed learning about the family that inhabited it in the early days of Nashville. Each ornate room was full of interesting artifacts and paintings. Definitely a treat for the eyes! Highly recommend if you enjoy historic homes.
