The museum is a great spot to visit, and the tour guides were outstanding; both in information and personalities. Over ninety percent of the furnishings are original.

I visited this historic home in the 4th grade as i went to Castle Heights in Lebanon. That was 49 years ago and what a difference now, guides in period costumes convey a wealth of little known facts about Jackson.

Our family Loves coming here each year. We always discover something new each time we visit. They have special events through the year, but the carriage tour rides are our favourites.

We only took the general admission, but the audio machine you can use for a self guided tour was sufficient in my opinion.

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?
