This plantation has a very different feeling than others ( Boone, Wormsloe, Oak Alley). This is not about a beautiful Manor House, an oak alley or Spanish moss. It's all about the cotton in past and present. They have cotton growing on the old site so you can see, touch and smell. The slave cabins bring you back to a... More

Really interesting original 19 th C cotton gin. Shown around by owners wife. Original slave huts. Even had a sing along of Slavs songs with old guy. They'd left some cotton plants in after harvesting to see in field. Then drive through of working modern cotton machinery in action. Highly recommended.

This is an interesting look into the past. For those of us who come from countries where cotton is not grown, this visit gave us a good insight into the history of the cotton plantations and a look at the crop itself. It was harvesting time and the bushes were full of cotton waiting for harvest.

Great guided tour of working cotton plantation. The two ladies that conducted this tour were well versed in the history giving you a genuine feeling of how it was back in the 19th century. Many interesting artifacts. We visited when the weather was nice. I suggest others should do also.

Frogmore is one of the few museums providing a detailed view of plantation life and the operation of the 'cotton kingdom' during the first half of the nineteenth century. The physical exhibits are first class and the guides extremely well-informed. The entry cost is low and worth every penny.

Really interesting insight into the life of a plantation during the pre Civil War period. Buildings and implements plus we were lucky to arrive during the cotton harvest time. What really brought it to life however was the enthusiasm and knowledge of the two tour guides, Rhonda and Lynn, who were exceptional - thank you ladies.
