I am a big history buff but was very disappointed by Hermitage. It was disorganized, they made you walk up to the house to get a timed ticket, then back to the exhibit hall, then when we went to the house at the appointed time...More

This space has been wonderfully accomodating in the past to school groups, and especially to teenagers who want to see more antebellum architecture in use as a culturally relevant space. I went to a recital put on by teenagers in the Hermitage some years ago,...More

Well done movie! Very helpful and informative guides. Grounds / buildings are well taken care of. Only thing that I would change is to give a small tour outside the house as you walk out of the house. We thought someone was going to continue...More

A visit to The Hermitage immerses one in the past elegance of the southern landowners, while providing insight to the “politics of the day” and relevance to ongoing governmental relationships. The interior of the home has been painstakingly restored, using all of the original Jackson...More

The walk from the museum to the Hermitage is very nice and then beyond the Hermitage there is a shorter historic walk you can take but also a longer stretch through a bit of forest. If you have nice weather I'd recommend walking as much...More

There are wheelchairs available on-site if you should need one of those. Otherwise, the only stairs that would be used are those in the mansion to the second floor. As many have said, the longest walk is the path from the... More

They sell beverages at several locations so no need to pack your own. The length of the walk is up to you. For just the house and gardens probably less than 1 1/4 miles. Is tour all of the hounds maybe 3 miles?
