The Hermitage is a beautiful home and nice to visit with friends. The grounds around the home are also interesting to view.

A museum for well over 100 years, this home is fortunate to contain original Jackson items. The audio tour is interesting and the grounds in the fall are gorgeous. You truly feel that you have stepped back in time.

A good audio guide, and it comes with admission which is nice. Interesting to learn the history and see the estate.

The school children added to our experience in visiting this historical home. The guides were wonderful and answered our questions readily. The admission price was a little steep, but it was worth the time spent.

This place is amazing. So much to see. Extremely interesting. The tour of the actual home is done in small groups which allows you to enjoy the entire home. There is plenty to see. Make sure you take the walk around the entire grounds. We were there for 4 hrs and the time flew by. Give yourself plenty of time to enjoy everything there is to see.
