We toured the hermitage as a family and I was not sure how it was going to be received by my 11 and 15 year old- well they loved it! The self directed audio tour made all the difference. Everyone could go at their own pace- listen to what they wanted at their pace. The guided tour in the house... More

Spend a couple of hours. Great plantation, and grounds. Tour is excellent. Great way to spend day. Very nice facilities. Read a little about Andrew Jackson or Trail of Tears before you go, you'll enjoy it a bit more. Jackson was a colorful character.

The mansion and grounds have been faithfully restored, and era costumed guides are both interesting and entertaining - you almost expect Jackson himself to be seated around the corner!

I was fortunate enough to visit The Hermitage with a friend who was able to help me understand certain things better about this part of history and was able to show them things from a different perspective than theirs. Being able to share this site with a friend was a great experience.

We have visited this twice. The Hermitage is so full of history. The grounds are beautiful and the buildings are amazing. The staff is so knowledgeable and helpful. Would recommend to anyone. There is a ton of walking and there isnt any wheelchair accessible buildings. The last visit, my child was in a wheel chair for an injury and had... More

This was a partially self guided tour. The museum was very interesting but may not be interesting for children. The home itself is very nice and it is very nice that the majority of the actual belongings did belong to Jackson or his immediate family members. There is a lot of walking, especially if you venture to the site where... More

Only a 20 minute drive from the downtown Nashville area, Andrew Jackson's Hermitage is filled with history and knowledge for everyone. For $20.00 you get to walk about the 1200 acres of land, and a guided tour of inside in the house it's self. I thought it was very worth it and would highly suggest it.

After the self guided tour, we walked the grounds to the mansion, where we took the guided tour. The mansion is beautifully preserved. The wallpaper in the common areas are over 180 years old - and a real highlight!

We thoroughly enjoyed out day at the Hermitage. We are so glad we waited in the very long line for a tour of the home. The characters were so good. Thanks to all who help out there to preserve history.
