The Hermitage was a great stop on our vacation. The self-guided tour was fascinating. The guides inside the house were friendly and informative. The house was amazing. We learned a lot about President Jackson, though his actions towards Native Americans and slaves is white washed a bit.

I do love visiting historic sites. And there are few as uniquely beautiful as the Hermitage. Sprawling grounds, a stunning home, and interesting installations abound. Is it cheap? No. But well worth it considering all there is to see and do at this wonderful site. Whether you just want to browse the gift shop and museum or take a tour of the grounds and President Jackson’s home itself, there’s a little something for everyone. For my wife and I, we preferred the tour of the main house and the garden. And on the day we visited, children from the local elementary school were acting as docents, reciting what they’d learned in their history classes. Adorable.

It was hard to bite the bullet and pay $20 for the tour, but it's a really great experience. I'm a total history nerd, and everything was really well done. In the end, you can spend a lot of time on the property and make it worth the price.
