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 grounds are unbelievably stunning. Tour of the house is interesting and you learn of the family and the slaves that ran the plantation. The slave quarters were interesting to peek inside of and see how they lived. In one outbuilding is written every slave’s...More

Took my husband and four kids (13,12,10,10) and everyone had a great time. We thought the home and grounds were beautiful. This is the quintessential plantation home. The tour was done by a new guide (so it was pretty rough but he tried). Despite this,...More

Beautiful plantation! Trip from New Orleans was an hour a half. Comfortable tour bus ride. Clean bathrooms. Small sandwich and ice cream shop and a small bar on premises. Extentisive gift shop. Gardens were beautiful. You can see the French influence. This tour is a...More

Visit of the garden, mansion and baraquments for slaves. Very few explanations about slavery. We see only one point of view but we guess it's everywhere like this. The mansion and the alley is really beautiful. The interior is less fancy than we expected. You...More

It is just like the pictures I saw and more! From The beautiful alley of 300 year old oaks, well maintained museum home, lovely gardens to the slaves museum, this site is worth a visit.

My husband and I spent the better part of a day at the plantation and probably missed plenty. Our guide through the home was entertaining and extremely knowledgeable of the plantations history. Amazing

I can't decide on 1 star or 5 stars. It's horrible and amazing. I still can't get the lump out of my throat after having visited the slave quarters. If you've only read the history of the south in school books, come and walk among...More
