Visit our site

Andrew Jackson’s Hermitage is one of the largest, most visited presidential homes in the United States and one of Nashville’s top-rated attractions. Located only minutes from downtown and Gaylord Opryland resort, this is a must-do when visiting Music City.

This 1,120-acre National Historic Landmark features over 30 historic buildings, a seasonal wagon tour, walking trails, beautiful gardens and grounds, and much, much more. The Hermitage mansion is considered to be the most accurately preserved early presidential home in the country. In recent years, new interpretive initiatives and programs have enhanced the experience of some 225,000 annual visitors. The Hermitage is Tennessee’s top-rated historic home.

While on-site, be sure to experience the powerful new orientation film, “Jackson,” and the state-of-art exhibition, “Andrew Jackson: Born for a Storm.” This engaging exhibit brings to life the rich story of Andrew Jackson’s meteoric rise from his humble beginnings to his presidency through bold visuals and a series of interactive displays. The three pivotal stages of Jackson’s astonishing life are highlighted: his modest origins as an orphan, his resiliency as a General and his visionary leadership as a President.

Be sure to join us this spring for “The Duel: The Art of the Southern Gentleman.” Free with paid admission, you will learn about defending your honor in the antebellum South. Highly interactive, this exciting addition to your visit ends with a dueling demonstration by our historic re-enactors. You never know, you may get picked from the crowd to participate!

From ghost tours to fall festivals, Easter eggs hunts, and wine events, there is so much to experience year-round at the home of our 7th president. For tickets, directions, and additional information visit www.thehermitage.com
