The Hermitage is a short drive from Nashville and easy to get to with plenty of parking. Tour guides were well versed and told you all about it's history. Audio guides help you on seeing the other aspects of the property. The preservation of the house is amazing, the furniture, wall papers, clothing and household goods is absorbing. We liked... More

We heard some good reviews so we stopped and spent some time seeing the Hermitage. There is a museum but, we didn't have time to go through it. We spent our time seeing the house and the grounds. The house is very impressive and they are working hard to preserve it as it was. There were several "period" furniture pieces... More

Very well guided tours makes you realize just how living in those times contributed to the development of our country. Very sad to see the slave quarters - and appalling conditions. Did not really know much about President Andrew Jackson before this visit.

Beautifully kept mansion and grounds. It was a very interesting visit that even my 14 year old granddaughter enjoyed! We all learned things about the president and his wife Rachel. Unfortunately, it was a Very hot day and we did not explore the beautiful grounds. All in all, a very nice trip.

The cost of admission here includes a tour of the Jackson mansion and allows you to wander through the plantation, slave quarters and the garden area. Its very much worth the visit, is not a far drive from Opryland, and gives you an interesting look at the life and times of Andrew Jackson and his family.

The guides were terrific and personable. The home is wonderfully preserved and all items are from the Jacksons when they resided there. The grounds are beautiful and the audio guide makes for an informational self-guided tour through parts. True Jackson was no saint but the historical value of his home is one to be seen. Glad we took the time... More

I made one mistake on our trip to Tennessee. Our plane left at 3:30 pm and because our hotel was only 15 mins from The Hermitage I thought we could fit it in before we left. I was very wrong. The estate is very large, very beautiful and deserves more than a quick run through. I would suggest allowing three... More

Beautiful house and grounds with a lot of history. We really enjoyed all the information given in the tour. Too bad we couldn't take pictures inside the house.

The Hermitage is Andrew Jackson's home and museum to his life. In my northern schooling, he did not receive a lot of attention. But after touring the museum and exhibits, it is clear to me that Jackson was one of our nation's greatest presidents. Watch the video of Professor Dan Feller and Jon Meacham, author of a Pulitzer Prize winning... More
