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.

We only wanted to view the grounds but had to pay a flat fee of $22 which includes the tour. We paid up and were glad we did as we enjoyed strolling through the grounds and up Oak Alley. There was also a good exhibit...More

It was all my architecture dreams come true! So worth the drive. We didn't have a reservation, but were able to walk in, purchase our tickets for 20 (Teacher discount) and go exploring. The slavery exhibit was powerful, and they did a wonderful job honoring...More

I visited Oak Alley in October. I combined it with a tour of the Whitney Plantation. Unfortunately, Oak Alley followed the Whitney Plantation, and honestly I was only able to tour and visit the Big House. I enjoyed my visit, but I was very disappointed...More

The grounds of this Southern plantation are very beautiful. The tour guides were really knowledgeable and there is a lot of history here. Of course the history is a bit grim (you'll see the slave houses) so that's why I didn't give it 5 stars....More

Oak Alley is exactly what you picture in your mind when you think of a southern plantation. It was just the most beautiful place you can imagine, with the row of majestic live oak trees leading from the river to the house. The grounds and...More

Enjoyed walking around on a sunny day in late October. One of the most popular Plantation Homes on the Mississippi River dating back to the 1800's. Take the tour, have a mint julep and then visit the gift shop before you leave.

Although the house itself was nice it was built on the slave trade and I found the whole experience a bit grim. There are replicas of the slave huts in the grounds and also a price list for the people. The grounds are very nice...More
