  • My mom and I visited The Hermitage and thoroughly enjoyed it. The gift shop is nice with a good selection, the museum is interesting, and the house and grounds are lovely. Highly recommend. 
  • My family was able to touch the past everybody was so friendly and the grounds were well maintained. The Audio Tour was right up our alley as a Touring Band Big Daddy Caddy.

  • The property is well laid out with plenty of parking, admission is reasonable and the museum before you begin the your of the property is excellent. The self guided walking tour includs an audio device informing you about the rich history of the Jackson's. The house itself is a guided tour and the docents are superb. The house is well preserved and there are more buildings on the property to be seen as well. Go see it!
  • When you live here, it's easy to take places such as this for granted. Or worse yet, not even acknowledge their existence. This place is a piece of living history. Granted, it was part of an ugly past, and Mr. Jackson might not have been the best guy, but it was a different time. Try to put that aside and go see how people (Well, the people who were the 1% back then) lived.
  • Loved this site, really want to go back. Went for a business function so didn't have time to walk around as much as I would have liked. Very large, very quiet, tons of birds. Was really hot the day I went. I would love to go back on a cooler day and be able to walk around, look around and enjoy the super quiet.
  • Extremely well-preserved and authentically furnished home. Everything in the house belonged to Jackson except for the fake food on the table and the toothbrush on the sink.
  • Loved this historical tour. Took about 3 hours to walk the house, garden and land. Really well done.
