As we were in Nashville to spend the 4th of July, I didn't want to pass up a trip out to Andrew Jackson's Hermitage. I thoroughly enjoy visiting the older homes of our early presidents and Jackson's home was no exception. We actually got the...More

We only were able to wander the grounds, as our time there did not allow for a tour of the home. I am excited to visit another time and see the house.

Hands down the best tour I ever experienced of a Presidential home or library. Fascinating in detail and makes history of that period come alive. Wonderfully easy to get to by car.

I took Kids ranging from 9-13 and all of them enjoyed it. The house is so well maintained dans the gardens are beautiful. You feel like you are stepping back in time.

There was no line to get in and we used the audio set to listen to the tour as we explored. We then enjoyed a short tour inside the home but mostly spent time wandering g the grounds. Beautiful day.

This was an interesting place to visit. Lots to see on the property. The house was beautiful and I loved the original wall paper still on some of the walls. It’s a step back in time and a great place to appreciate the history behind...More
