If someone enjoys history, this visit should be on their list. The home isn't terribly huge but it can be visited in a few hours including walking time. Just about everything is original down to the wallpaper. There is a large parking lot near the entrance but the home itself is a bit of a walk from there. We had... More

The Hermitage is not only the home and story of Andrew Jackson, but Rachel Jackson too. Learning about some of the political troubles and scandals of Jackson's era shows that times have not changed all that much. Rachel Jackson died before Jackson took office and she was often over-shadowed by her flamboyant husband but I found her story very interesting.... More

This is my favorite place to visit in the Nashville area!!! I am a history buff and this is one of the most authentic historical sites I have ever seen! I have been to the Hermitage a few times in the past but my last visit was probably twenty years ago! Many changes (for the better) and much was still... More

Large farm and mansion house. Great guided tour of the house and the wagon ride is a must. Enjoyed the feeling of being where it all happened.. Great gift shop and cafe.

This is the Hermitage - home of Andrew Jackson (March 15, 1767 – June 8, 1845) who was the American statesman (General) who served as the seventh President of the United States of America from 1829 to 1837. We suggest a visit here. Audio-guide's are available. This was a great tour.

We did the Tour of Andrew Jacksons home outskirts of Nashville and was very impressed. Always thought he was very southern and supported the South in the Civil War but not so. He did own slaves but treated them better than most. He was a slave owner. But as our 7th president he had tough hurdles and many tough decisions.... More

As a northerner, I wasn't sure how I would feel about this experience, but it is important to expose yourself to the pain of history to understand the present more clearly. Beautiful grounds and mansion. The slave cabins were eye opening.

Nice visit to The Hermitage. We took the tour with the audio wand and it was very informative. Lots to take in, and the home was very well preserved. We enjoyed walking the property, a really nice way to spend the afternoon. We ate before we went there and I think that was a good thing.
