This was a glimpse into the harsh history of slavery, not just in Louisiana, but across the world. The impact that the Whitney Plantation Museum has on those who take the walk into history is very impactful and will leave you with a clear understanding...More

This is the only plantation which is dedicated to the life of the slaves rather than the slave holders. I cannot remember the name of my guide, but he was so knowledgeable and passionate. It's an interesting place and a sad one at the same...More

(I had to read the few "terrible" and "poor" reviews to make sure I understood why my experience was so vastly different. I'm not trying to rebut anything said, because I understand some of the criticisms, but still came away with a completely different experience.)...More

This tour was life-altering for me. No one ever talks about the impact of slavery on the most vulnerable of the slave population. To walk the Plantation and imagine how miserable the lives of slaves had to be. To see in person the sugar cane...More

Every person should visit a slave plantation- to try to begin to understand what the slaves endured as the unwilling backbone of America. We will forever treasure this experience and what they taught our family.

There's a local place right near the Whitney called B&C Seafood which is simple but the food is delicious and I highly recommend it.

Sorry we had our own car but tour takes at least 90 min. There is a small museum at the entrance so more time if you have it
