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 took a lot of pictures, the place is beautiful. The guided tour of the house was great, but don't skip the slave quarters or the video on how the sugar cane is turned into sugar.

The plantation is beautiful and you will definitely enjoy taking pictures of the grounds. In fact, this is the highlight of the stop. Unfortunately, the guided tours were underwhelming. And didn't really have much to do with the information being given to us by the...More

Amazing experience, worth doing the tour through the house. Amazing spots for photos. Must walk down the path in front of the main house, and visit the slave houses too.

Oak Alley clearly illustrates the relationship between Planter and enslaved people who lived about 200 yards from the main house. The slave cabins are recreated but the exhibit is worth the trip. Haunting. A picture-perfect example of American power structure.
