Took the $20 tour

It was an interesting tour.. I was surprised at how authentic the main house was kept.. I believe over 90% original.

If you're visiting Nashville and have time, this is a great tour. I only had a couple of hours to spend here but I could have stayed longer, despite the oppressive heat the day I visited. The grounds are beautiful. The house is in really good condition. The audio tour (included with the price of admission) had a lot of... More

Visited this morning. The grounds and restoration were well done. The guides were very knowledgable about the home and history. Learned many things I did not know about him as a citizen, military man and politician.

The Hermitage is a collection of amazingly preserved history and information about our 7th president. He was a fascinating character and I highly recommend visiting this historical place.

Very informative in the museum area. Love that his home was preserved the way it was. Pretty amazing to see the vision of that time era. And they had no AC! A must see!

Very well preserved main house and grounds buildings full of authentic pieces. A fair amount of historical information if you have the time for it. Would recommend the upgraded audio device - you get more background info with it. Although the grounds aren't huge, we managed to spent about 4 hours there. The tour guides in the house were friendly... More

I believe it was $18 per person for the tour with AAA discount. The Mansion was really interesting to see, and I wished I had allowed more time to tour it. The mansion is beautiful and the historians gave out some interesting information about it, bit I think they could have given more info on the mansion.The outside grounds is... More

This is a beautifully maintained and presented historic site...the home of Andrew Jackson. President Jackson is, I feel comfortable in saying, the historic Favorite Son of Tennessee. We learned a great deal about Mr. Jackson on this trip, between a visit to the State Museum, and our visit to Hermitage. Everything was very well presented. My problem, and the reason... More

This is a nice historical tour. The tour guides are knowledgeable and enjoy their jobs. The house is well taken care of and immaculate. I enjoyed the museum and learned about this president's life. I recommend the horse ride if its not too hot.
