Overview
More
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.

On a lovey day in May, we visited Oak Alley Plantation. The Oaks are impressive - 300 years old and massive and worth alone the visit. The Main house is worthwhile visiting and so is the slavery exhibit. If you decide to have lunch there,...More

Although this plantation was probably anything but a paradise for the slaves who worked the sugar cane back in the 19th century, today the beautiful house and the fabulous oak trees creating the shady alley to the white-columned entrance, make this a lovely place to...More

Firstly, this place is beautiful, but the history that happened there wasn't. I think the beauty of the place (old house/oak trees) overtakes the history of the place. There was little to no mention about the slaves. This needs to be fixed! What about the...More

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