This is definitely a one time stop for me. It was interesting, but the majority of the artifacts were not owned by the Jacksons. The guide was very knowledgeable.

This museum is dedicated to Jackson's domestic life as a VMI instructor. Nicely restored and furnished. Don't skip if you have any real interest in American history. Nice staff as well.

We were touring Lexington and this was one of the stops. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and had majored in civil war history in college. We learned so much about him as a person that we had not known before and found the tour...More

Response from Taylor B | Reviewed this property |
He was a very religious man. He would sit and look at the wall and meditate. He also would memorize his lecture for the following day's class at VMI.
