This was an excellent stop on our 4 day tour of Nashville. So glad we went there. The grounds consisted of an indoor museum, the Hermitage mansion, the gardens and grounds. We spent about 4 hours touring everything. We started with a 15 minute movie that gave us an overview of President Jackson. I highly recommend utilizing the audio system which is provided for free. Lots of of very detailed information about the House, grounds, president and his wife. There is also an excellent cafe on site and a cool gift shop. We spent about 4 hours there total and $30 on lunch for two.

It’s a great place to visit if you like hearing the history of a slave owner and the person responsible for hundreds of Native Americans dying on the Trail of Tears. It’s just not a place I will ever revisit.

Loved it! An incredible man and pivotal in shaping and defending our country. The Hermitage does not hide the dark sides of him but chooses to focus on the good as they should.

Of all the preserved presidential homes and estates this one has the most intact furnishings to give you an authentic look of what the home looked like when occupied. The displays in the visitor center give you a great understanding of Andrew Jackson and The War of 1812.
