Go beyond the myths of the American South and explore the complex and intimate relationships of 4 generations of one Louisiana Creole family, both free and enslaved. Laura’s new, permanent exhibit examines in biographical detail the lives of Africans on the plantation, from enslavement into the 20th century. In the heart of Plantation Country on the Mississippi River, the fully guided experience includes the Big House, gardens & original 1840s slave cabins. Laura is open daily from 9:30AM - 5PM except for major holidays. The first tour of the day begins at 10AM with tours beginning approximately every 40 minutes thereafter until the last tour of the day at 4PM. Before or after your Laura tour, enjoy authentic, homestyle Cajun and Creole food at B&C Seafood Market and Cajun Restaurant right next door.

Such a beautiful and different plantation due to the Creole influence. I had visited Oak Alley also that day and to see the differences in architecture was lovely. My tour guide was Stephen, he was fantastic! Very enthusiastic and extremely knowledgeable.

We took the 11:00 tour and our guide presented the information very good. I would recommend this tour to others. If you are looking for information on how the slave labor was used this is the one for you.

Visiting this historic sugar plantation was illuminating. I will never look at sugar products the same after a skillful tour docent provided insightful comments and perspective on the Creole heritage in Southern Louisiana. Slave quarters brought the point home how brutal life was here for...More

.....but the view of the main house from the end of the oak tree lined road is unique and made the stop worthwhile. Also, the adjacent sugarcane field was interesting to us NY'ers!

Our group rented a car so we didn't use a tour company. The cost was about 20 to get in. There was not much walking except a hundred yards out to the slave quarters but you could opt out of that part.

We went there in the midst of a road trip and were in New Orleans the night before and were headed to Natchez so we didn't stay around there I'm afraid! Good luck!
