The museum, although small, had very informative exhibits. The mansion was interesting, although the first floor was closed off for renovations (normally done in Jan - Feb). There are several other buildings on the property - it's a nice meander around the 1100+ acres. Major...More

Wonderful tour of the mansion, full of fascinating info. We chose for the headphone option to provide info as we toured the grounds, and it was very well worth it. We learned a great deal.

Nicely laid out grounds and history. Great preserved residence but under restoration so the first floor is a mess.

When people go to Nashville, they typically go to all the country music sites e.g. the Ryman, and The Grand Old Opry. But, what about visiting the home of a US President and seeing how life was almost 200 years ago? The Hermitage includes a...More

See the home of President/General Jackson as it evolved, the grounds, and his grave. Fully escorted tours are provided. Worth a trip there. Nice museum as well.

We really enjoyed our visit here. We decided to purchase a membership as it was cheaper for our family than the cost of individual admission. The main focus is obviously the main house, which is really interesting, and the staff do a wonderful job conducting...More

It is a nice place to hear about the american history, and specifically about one of its president. All the fuss about the house is a bit too much for me, however, there is space to wander around, nice to do on a sunny day.

We got there late in the day but the staff was gracious and let us visit before they closed. This site was an original homestead and it was great to see everything as it would have been back in the 1800's.

There are wheelchairs available on-site if you should need one of those. Otherwise, the only stairs that would be used are those in the mansion to the second floor. As many have said, the longest walk is the path from the... More

We only took the general admission, but the audio machine you can use for a self guided tour was sufficient in my opinion.

They sell beverages at several locations so no need to pack your own. The length of the walk is up to you. For just the house and gardens probably less than 1 1/4 miles. Is tour all of the hounds maybe 3 miles?
