General Jackson welcomed many important visitors to The Hermitage throughout his life. Continuing his tradition, we welcome you to an enjoyable experience with family and friends as you tour Andrew Jackson’s Hermitage – Home of the People’s President. We offer many regular and seasonal tours and exhibits that are included with your admission ticket or available for purchase. Get more information about admission and hours to plan your visit.
Be sure to check out our digital resources as well. From views of the mansion and our historic garden to discussions with our curatorial team and even our president and CEO, we share little-known facts about The Hermitage and even Andrew Jackson himself, as well as insights on why our team members choose to work at the home of the 7th president. We hope you will enjoy these videos and find them helpful, encouraging and timely. Visit our Videos page for all of our offerings. We also will share updates on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
