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.

I have seen Oak Alley Plantation in several movies and television shows but they do not do it justice. It is a must see when visiting the area. The home and grounds are fabulous.

I was skating around a few plantations and stopped by Oak Alley. The $22 admission is a little steep in my opinion, but the restaurant and gift shop is on the outside of the gates. There is a side entrance by the restaurant that is...More

The only nice part about the plantation was their informative exhibit on slavery and the maintenance of the grounds. The house tour was led by a guide in costume but drinking from a styrofoam cup! Which she then proceeded to set on antique furniture. She...More
