Overview

A powerful testimony to the rich history of the antebellum south, Oak Alley invites visitors to explore all facets of her plantation past. The Slavery at Oak Alley exhibit, Civil War exhibit, Sugarcane Theater and Big House offer an experience as compelling as the plantation’s 25 historic acres and 300 year old allee of oaks.

Gorgeous ground! Interesting slave quarters exhibit and plantation house tour. Adequate parking if you drive, and good restaurant and gift shop on grounds. Suggest morning visit to avoid crowded tour buses if you are driving. Highly recommend.

The Whitney plantation! Hands down the most informational. It’s more of a museum and than a historical tour within credibly knowledgeable guides.
