Our education department will send you an itinerary, and you can download resources including pre- and post-activities for most of our programs here.
Hermitage educators will not be with you for your entire visit, but you can download our Teacher’s Guide to The Hermitage to quickly become an expert.
We will carry on with your field trip unless there are thunderstorms or severe weather. No students will be placed outdoors in case of lightning or rain. We will make every effort to reschedule if there is a weather-related cancellation.
Our staff will meet you in the Andrew Jackson Visitor Center breezeway to handle payment and get you started.
