This 14-room house is as pristine as it was when built in the late 1700s. Nearly 90% of what it contains belonged to Andrew Jackson and his wife Rachel Donelson making it especially appealing. I was very pleased to hear several of the docents refer to the fact that much of the property came to be because of the work... More

I would recommend this visit. The guides were consistently full of life and stories from the Jackson period. We walked the grounds and enjoyed viewing the house which has 95% original furnishings!!

Loved this tour. We could walk at our own pace. Had the audio to listen at each location during the tour. Really interesting to learn about houses of that time as well as the history behind the house.

We were there a bitter, cold weekend in January and realized that the Hermitage is better visited in pleasant weather because you'll want to explore the grounds. The historic home is interesting to tour, and the interpretation of Andrew Jackson's life is well-done.

There is a lot to see and read. Make sure you give yourself plenty of time to take it all in. I found it very interesting that one of their slaves, upon receiving his freedom, stayed and became a tenant farmer and was one of the first tour guides when the Hermitage opened to the public. He is buried in... More

Took the tour on 1/11/17. Andrew Jackson was quite the president. The place tells the story in a very thorough manner. Lots of artifacts and a great learning experience.

This is a second visit for me to this home and grounds. Being winter, the grounds are resting for the winter, but today was an exceptional day - 68 degrees. The warmth made it easy to stroll through the grounds and take to the time to look closely at many of the out buildings and look at the grounds. Also... More

Andrew Jackson fought in the Revolution as a young teenager and gained his fame from his victory in New Orleans at the end of the War of 1812. He was not kind to the Indians. He was instrumental in forcing them off their own land and moving them to far away, inhospitable areas. The estate is beautiful and preserved well.... More

While visiting Nashville, we only had time to visit one historic home. We had a tough time choosing between the Hermitage and Belle Meade. We went with the Hermitage since it was the home of a President. We enjoyed our visit there. Its interior is beautiful. The Visitor Center was interesting too.

For the price ($20/person) I would have liked to learn more about Andrew Jackson that I couldn't get from a text book. There was more information than I could read on the walls of the museum about battles and politics but I was most interested in the man himself, his family, and the workings of his farm. I LOVED seeing... More
