How much do you know about president Andrew Jackson? Well, if you know only a bit, or you could recite his life story by heart, then there is still a great reason for everyone to visit Andrew Jackson’s Hermitage…it’s an amazing historic family day out in Nashville!
You’ll also walk away knowing more things about this president than you knew when you arrived!
The museum at The Hermitage is a great place to learn. There are a number of exhibits each covering a range of topics that will fascinate.
They have actually just in 2015 opened a new exhibit: “Born For A Storm” which gives you an incredibly detailed look at the life of this great man. It documents his rise from humble beginnings, right through to his presidency, and the interactive displays make it really easy for kids to understand what they are learning.
Did you know he was an orphan growing up? See, we told you that there are things to learn at the Hermitage! The exhibit also covers his resiliency as a General, and his leadership as President.
The First Hermitage exhibit tells the story of his family and how their American story unfolded.
There are two types of admissions that you can purchase. The Generals Tours admission gives you access to the grounds, the museum, the exhibits, and the store, along with self-guided audio tours, as well as an interpreter-led mansion tour.
The Presidents Tour Admission is an upgraded, self-guided multimedia tour, where you get to experience very cool interactive elements that you can’t find anywhere else on the tour!
Keep an eye out for special events, like holiday evenings and lantern evenings, as well as special seasonal tours and wagon tours. Plenty of fun things to do for the family here!
History is amazing when you can walk on the same ground it happened on!
