I'm a history teacher in Texas and this place was absolutely amazing. The living historians throughout the house and grounds are very intellegint about the house and the grounds. It's a great place to take the family were you can roam and see what you want. They also have a museum on site that is quite extensive with a gift... More

We took our four children ranging in age from 7 to 13 to visit Hermitage. It was a fantastic experience and all of us learned a lot of history about Andrew Jackson, the civil war, and slavery. This living museum is truly fabulous. Upgrade and do the wagon tour it was the highlight of the trip.

The house tour is given by a costumed guide. The grounds were covered with an audio tour which was great, you could get more information on a certain site if you were so inclined. The grounds are beautiful. Very nice restaurant is on the grounds.

They did a great job on the tour of giving visual pictures of what life was about in those days. The guides could answer all of our inquiries with great stories! We took the wagon tour and loved it! In the heat I would have never made it to see it all! Go early! That we the best advice I... More

The tour of the house and grounds is great. The guides for the tour are very informative and take the time to explain the rooms you are looking at, provide historical information and respond to questions. They seem to really enjoy what they are doing. The museum is very informative as well. The cafeteria is also a great place to... More

We felt ripped off, paid $20 each to be rushed through the home to look over glassed off areas and spent most of our day in the direct heat hiking to the cabins, wouldn't recommend wasting your time. Also the restaurant was over priced and the portions were tiny, and we are not big eaters.

This was a great way to spend some vacation time. Plan on taking a half of a day to see it. The grounds are lovely. The walk to the house is shaded which was a relief in the summer. The house is amazing. The guides are very informative. Make sure to visit the flower garden.

The tour of the house is very interesting as are the grounds; however, you do spend a great deal of time walking and outside so not ideal if raining or very hot/humid days. Museum is free for active duty and discounts for retired military

My husband and I visit many historic homes while traveling around the country. The Hermitage is a wonderful experience that is set apart from other properties we have encountered. First, it offers a small museum about Andrew Jackson and the state of our country at during his lifetime. Once outdoors you can use the audio tour to learn about the... More
