Explore the Andrew Jackson: Born for a Storm Exhibit

This state-of-the-art, 1.1 million dollar exhibit brings 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.

More Exhibits

This 30-minute interactive visitor experience will answer questions such as “What was the process of a duel?,” “Why did people choose to duel in the first place?,” followed by an ACTUAL dueling demonstration by our historic re-enactors. You never know, you may get picked from the crowd to participate! Remember, keep your friends close…and enemies closer.

 

Thursday through Sunday from 10:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

Join The Hermitage for a 19th-century interactive guest experience showcasing gambling in the 1800s. Learn more about Jackson’s role in the most popular sport of his day and the men, women, gamblers and enslaved jockeys who made horse racing history. And you will have the opportunity to publicly (and loudly) bet on the outcome of one of Jackson’s most famous races, a heated contest between his prized horse Pacolet and his rival Haynie’s Maria. In this race, all bets are off. Visit The Hermitage to experience the bravado of the horse owners, the excitement of the wagering and the story behind Jackson’s third and final quest to beat Haynie’s Maria.

Thursday through Sunday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
