Inside the building, you provide ID (such as driver's license) in return for the audio tour equipment (headphones and channel selector). Each stopping point on your walking tour has a number you can punch in on your channel selector to get the audio portion of the tour. This works very well. Your first stop, though, is a 12-15 minute movie that does a good job of introducing President Andrew Jackson's life and family. It does help, however, if you've done some reading on the subject before you come to The Hermitage. The more you know about the man and his life, the more this beautiful and historical property can be appreciated. You might enjoy noticing that the entrance to The Hermitage is on Rachel's Lane. President Jackson's wife was named Rachel.
