There is some outdoor walking involved, even to get to the house. Come prepared for this in inclement weather.
The inpression we got from the website was that it was much bigger than it actually was. That said, we spent about 2 hours there. They charge $11 for a horse drawn cart ride which is overpriced and could easily be walked.The film was interesing and so were the recreated slave huts.
Good experience - beautiful grounds and I learned alot about the guy on the twenty dollar bill!

Visited The Hermitage while spending a few days in Nashville. The house was interesting and the guides in each area very informative.

Had some family in town and decided to check out Hermitage. It was really nice. We toured the home, we boarded a wagon and were driven around the grounds and walked through the museum. For history, "buffs", this is a must see when visiting Nashville.
Been touring city to city around the USA viewing the homesteads of the presidents from the past. Most are in good condition, but this one is one of the most well preserved sites I have seen. All original furniture, wall paper, beds, books, etc, in this home. A must see!
Great audio tour, some escorted, lots of grounds and almost all original furnishings and wallpaper. We were super impressed and can't recommend it enough. We spent maybe 3 hours here, and could have stayed longer - lots to see! Don't miss this unique piece of history.
