December 16: Christmas at The Hermitage

Americans celebrate holidays to share traditions and values. But different groups of people celebrate the same holiday differently, and this reflects larger differences in American society. For Americans of Andrew Jackson’s day, Christmas games, crafts, foods and decorations looked vastly different. Join us for games, crafts, hot chocolate and special tours as we compare and contrast Christmas at The Hermitage! Ages 0-12.

Show us your best holiday masks! The Hermitage is following careful cleaning and social distancing practices to prevent the spread of COVID-19, including hand sanitizer stations, social distancing and requiring masks for staff and visitors.


Homeschool Days program activities are from 9 a.m. – 12 p.m. and include an interpreter-led tour of the mansion, self-guided tour of the Hermitage grounds, exhibit galleries and film. Pack a picnic lunch and eat at the tables available on the property or eat onsite in The Kitchen Cabinet Café.


The Hermitage also offers Hands on History programs for homeschool groups of 15 or more students. For more information on Homeschool Days or Hands on History programs please email [email protected].
