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.

The house and the famous oak avenue are beautiful to walk around. The exhibits in the garden with re-created slave houses are interesting but it would be nice to see some more information given the entrance fee of $25. Visiting the house is via organised...More

While the grounds and house are very nice an enjoyable to see, the tour not so much. Once you step out on the porch you are “locked” out. You can NOT get back in to leave as you wish and have to wait for others...More

We just returned from our tour of Oak Alley and were very impressed with the way in which they restored the area. Of course the iconic Oak Alley was the main attraction while there!

The grounds are very beautiful and the outside of the home is pretty, the inside tour is not all that, not the very best history tour.

Reading in history books or watching a film about slavery is very different from being on a plantation where slavery actually existed. I still think about the tour, the explanations, and seeing the quarters where the slaves lived. For me, it is something hard to...More

Beautiful main house and grounds. You get the full history regarding life before, during and after Civil War for inhabitants of the plantation.

This was the last plantation we visited and it rated last with us in wanting to visit again. I thought there would be more to view, but people mainly go there for the "Oak Alley", which were beautiful. As for the house tour, after waiting...More

Beautiful plantation BUT overrun with tourists and buses. Long line for tours of main house and we didn't want to wait in 95 degree heat. More people than they could accommodate. Just too crowded...and it was a weekday. SUGGEST: Go to different plantation. Also went...More

This sugarcane plantation was our first visit of the morning. The 300 year old oaks provided a scenic canopy over the drive up to the house. We enjoyed our tour of the house and grounds. The azaleas were in bloom as well and there is...More

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