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.

Beautiful property, with interesting history. The Slavery exhibition was excellent and a sad reminder of a history that was not so long ago. The plantation house tour was very interesting and our guide was very good. Lunch at the resturant was great. Highly recommended day.

Others have answered better than I could... but as suggested visit Laura plantation as well. Oak Alley was French Provincial styled but Laura is Creole. Totally different in so many ways. We did a guided tour which was $90... More
