Tours

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.

Please Note: Out of commitment to the safety and well-being of our visitors and staff, Andrew Jackson’s Hermitage will remain closed until further notice. We will continue to heed the advice and direction from our government leaders and healthcare officials, honoring the guidelines set forth.

In the meantime, we are utilizing technology to bring you virtual visits and interviews with some of our subject matter experts. From views of the mansion and our historic garden to discussions with our curatorial team and even our president and CEO, we will 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 FacebookInstagram and Twitter.

We are excited to launch three of our audio tours, accessible to you from any of your devices. Just click here to take the General Jackson Tour, Rachel Jackson Tour or Poll the Parrot’s Tour. You can also play a part in helping to preserve our site by donating here.

We anxiously await the opportunity to welcome you back to our 1,120-acre National Historic Landmark, offering you not only a step back into nineteenth-century America but an opportunity to reflect and refresh your spirits.

Until then, stay healthy. We look forward to seeing you soon.
