Well presented and very interesting. Gardens were also beautiful. Jackson may have been a rogue but he makes a fascinating historical subject.

My husband is a history professor, so we like to go to historical places on vacation. This is not the first presidential home we've been to, but it was one of the best! The Hermitage has been extremely well preserved, and the history of Andrew Jackson is very well presented. You hear about his humanity, as well as the horrible things he did (ie Indian Removal Act). The grounds are beautiful and you get to see slave quarters and other areas besides just the main home. A must-see in Nashville!

Took students to see this historic piece of American history. The tour guides were great and dressed in period costumes. The garden area looked like it needed some tending to. Cost $19 for adult and $8 more dollars if you want the headphones for the audio tour, which I would suggest you get otherwise you don't really know what things are.

This tour was really interesting. We got a great history about Andrew Jackson, and the furnishing were almost all originals. We did the audio tour, which I would highly recommend. I would also allow time to tour the grounds, as the property is large. There was not one question we had that they could not answer! They have a very nice gift shop, and a café.
