My wife and I love American history. This is the most historical accurate Presidential home in America! This home was built by Andrew Jackson for his family and NO other family has EVER lived in this house! I found this amazing since most of the furniture in the home is the original furniture.

Very interesting museum, which gave a full history of the presidents life and his time in office. Then you head outside to the mansion. We on,y had to wait a few minutes for the guided tour to start and it was very enjoyable. You can then walk around the garden and visit the tomb.

Being in Nashville for a few days, we felt that we had to get out to the Hermitage. There were informative exhibits to explore and they provided great background information/context before starting the actual tour. As nice as it was to tour the house, we enjoyed walking the grounds on a warm November day to take in both the history... More

We spent half a day touring the Hermitage and thoroughly enjoyed the history lesson. We recommend the horse drawn wagon tour of the property.

This place is filled with lots of history! We visited on a rainy Monday morning/afternoon. Unfortunately, the weather conditions weren't ideal, but we were still able to see everything. I really liked the audio accompaniment; it provided that little extra insight into the history. The grounds are lovely (I bet it's beautiful in the spring/summer). I think my favorite part... More

Visited on a Monday morning. Very few visitors. The grounds are immaculate. The museum was extremely interesting and informative . The displays were impressive. The house tour is a must. The guides are superb and a display the utmost knowledge. The family graveyard is also impressive. A great visit for 3/4 hours.

Highly recommend visiting the Hermitage if you are in the area. The self-directed audio tours are interesting and engaging. There are options for adult and kids audio commentary. As a mom of 2 younger boys, I found this to be a winner idea! I could listen and learn along the tour since my kids were being educated at the same... More

Spent a wonderful afternoon at "old hickory's" Heritage. The staff was very attentive. The tour is self paced, with a numbered map and an information playing device providing interesting and informative narrative on the locations. The house has live guides that are dressed to the civil war era period. The house guides are polite, answer questions, and good with kids.... More

The inside museum is very well done, informative and engaging. The information was presented well, and lots of details were included. I learned quite a bit, and even my boyfriend (a social studies teacher!) learned some things! The outside exhibits were great as well, you really got a good sense of the history. The house was beautiful, very well done... More

This is a wonderful tour that includes an extensive museum at the beginning to orient everyone about President Jackson's life. The audio devices included with the admission cost make it possible for people to tour at their own pace and be informed along the way. There is a kids' tour that kept our ten and seven year olds engaged. The... More
