Visit Belmont Mansion

We invite you to explore the largest house built in Tennessee prior to the Civil War. Constructed between 1849 and 1860, Belmont Mansion was the home of Adelicia and Joseph Acklen.

 

Visiting here is a unique opportunity to explore one of the few 1850s era homes still standing in Nashville while learning about the people - both free and enslaved - whose stories make this site worth understanding.

General admission tickets allow guests to tour at their own pace after an introduction from a tour guide in the Grand Salon. Signage in each room tells the story of the site and the residents. Tour guides stationed throughout the house are available for questions and additional information. Average tour is 45 minutes to one hour.

COVID-19 Update - Safety First

 

Belmont Mansion staff follow current CDC guidelines to ensure a safe environment for visitors and staff. Additionally as a building on the Belmont University campus we follow the University's COVID protocols. Currently masks are required of everyone inside University buildings.

 

We welcome you to Belmont Mansion and ask that you partner with us in creating a safe museum for all.

Thank you!
