Beautiful surroundings an very interesting tour and a duel reenactment made for a great experience. The home to one of America's most influential Presidents should be on every history buffs must see list.

The buildings and history are lovely, a must see. But the visit inside was poorly interpreted and very rushed. Given the importance of this site there should be a higher quality of your. The nearby Belle Meade site and tour were outstanding.

I recommend the President's tour and one should expect to stay 3 hours and more if you have time and stamina.

There is so much history here that shouldn't be forgotten. The house was beautiful and the grounds worth a stroll. There seems to be a discussion throughout the reviews about Jackson's treatment of the slaves and native american. While I hope everyone will agree that...More

Andrew Jackson's Hermitage is such a wonderful, well-preserved, piece of history. The grounds are beautiful and there is much to see and do. A newly added demonstration is about dueling and it was very interesting and well-done. We ended up being in a long line...More

It's always interesting to visit the homes of America's Presidents and this one, the Hermitage, is one of the better ones to witness. Part of the charm is the modern building that houses an auditorium that shows a film filling you in on Jackson's place...More

We only were able to wander the grounds, as our time there did not allow for a tour of the home. I am excited to visit another time and see the house.

Hands down the best tour I ever experienced of a Presidential home or library. Fascinating in detail and makes history of that period come alive. Wonderfully easy to get to by car.

I took Kids ranging from 9-13 and all of them enjoyed it. The house is so well maintained dans the gardens are beautiful. You feel like you are stepping back in time.

Hi I would say yes because it is in the grounds. At the moment General Jackson’s monument is covered due to vandalism
