Andrew Jackson's Hermitage reviews
We learned so much from the mansion tour guides and the displays. The grounds are beautiful and perfect for wandering around the property.

Absolutely beautiful scenery. We did the mansion tour and the grounds access and there was so much to explore. It was really cool to feel you are walking through history and learn about the lives of everyone who lived there. I would recommend about 3 to 4 hours to do everything. We came around 4 and did not have enough time to see everything. I enjoy history and reading everything so it does take me a bit longer to get through everything. If you like just looking at pictures may need a little less time! But definitely give yourself enough time so you do jot have to rush! Would recommend.
We had time between arrival and check in so we decided to stop and lock the grounds. We had about an hour wait before I could tour the mansion. There's plenty to do from the museum to the wine tasting to walk in the grounds to make that time go by very quickly. The grounds are gorgeous. All of the varieties of trees are very interesting. Thinking that some of them are hundreds of years old is incredible.
We chose to do the VIP tour. It was great. I really enjoy having a knowledgeable person explain to me what I am looking at. Otherwise, I just blow past everything too quickly. The grounds are absolutely beautiful. I could just spend the day walking outside enjoying the plants, wildlife, and scenery. The house is really well preserved with a lot of the original stuff. It was very impressive. We learned a lot about Jackson. His story is quite impressive. I'm so glad we visited. This is one of the better presidential places we have been.
I have lived 15 minutes away from here for 20+ years, yet never been here! Over 1100ac on the Hermitage once lived in by Andrew Jackson and his extended family and workers. Definitely do the carriage ride tour and museum tour! Lots of opportunities for some pics and a great history lesson. It’s so beautiful this time of year!
The tour was straight to the point, didn't take forever either, maybe 30 minutes. The walk around the whole area was pleasant, and there's even a horse carriage ride you can take, don't know if you have to pay as I didn't take it. The price, in my opinion, was hefty for a little piece of history, coming in at $24 per adult. But it was a very nice day out so walking around and looking at old buildings was kind of relaxing. As for what there is to look at, it's mainly Andrew Jackson's house with a few buildings you can walk into but there's not much in them and they're very small, I believe they have an event we're they play some older sport. The gift shop was mediocre, mainly books about stuff other than the president. There's "Wine Tasting" but no one was in there when I went in so, can't give you details on that, sorry! Overall, it was a good way to waste a few hours of my day, enjoyably. P.S. Also, I met two awesome folks from PA during the tour and got my picture with them, however I forgot their names, if you two guys are reading this, feel free to follow me on here and I'll try and find a way to get in touch!
