If you love history, you will love The Hermitage. So worth the price of admission. The visitors center was very nice and we had a wine tasting included in the price of admission. The mansion itself is such a beautiful peace of American history. They are very particular about not touching anything, and if you are female with a purse, you might want to leave it in the car. They make you hold it in front of you because they don't want you touch the amazing wallpaper. The garden where President Jackson and his wife are buried in a tomb is a gardeners dream! Absolutely gorgeous. There is a guided audio tour that you can download on your phone which is pretty cool. You will see the "Mansion", the "Smokehouse", Pres. Jackson's wife's garden (Ruth), Slave Alfred's log cabin, the original log cabin the President lived in for 20 years prior to the mansion being built and many artifacts. The property is about 1200+ acres, but everything you need is spread out over 5-6 acres. Be prepared to walk! As I said, of all the tourist attractions we saw, this was our favorite. It's only about 15 minutes from downtown. Definitely worth the money!

Great price. Great educational presentation on one of our great frontiers. Nice campus and getting to see where he lived after all these years was the best part. I would recommend the grounds tour. They have a cafeteria but honestly didn’t look to clean or appetizing. Complimentary wine taste was a bonus. Will recommend.

We did the VIP Tour and it was VERY interesting. Our guide was very knowledgeable and interesting and really made you feel like you were present in the time of Andrew Jackson. The scenery is picturesque, especially in the fall. So much history here. There is a winery and cafe on site. A free wine tasting comes with the tour. There are self-guided tours here, but the VIP tour was SO interesting, I highly recommend it!

We visited here to see Andrew Jackson’s home place. It was beautiful. The land was expensive!! The house is amazing!! They have done a great job updating it. The flower gardens are beautiful. Rich with history.

The information provided by the employees was very interesting. We did not know a ton of history about Andrew Jackson but it made us want to learn more about him.
