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.

We visited Oak Alley during a recent road trip to the southern states. It is without doubt a very worthwhile experience, looking at both the the house and the slave quarters and imagining what could have taken place there. It is both beautiful and sad...More

Must see! The site is beautiful, no doubt about it. The 200+ year old oaks are just like something out of an old movie. Be prepared to go through a multitude of emotions while on the plantation. We started out by visiting the slave shacks...More

The grounds are beautiful and our tour guide inside the home was good. Disappointed that most of the house is not original nor are the items inside and most of the rooms in the home are roped off. Still worth seeing and learning some history!

Oak Alley Plantation helps visitors step back in time through beautiful grounds and welcoming, well-educated tour guides. The grounds are well maintained and the oak trees are worth the drive. We also enjoyed lunch at the restaurant and were very pleased with our food. I...More

This is probably the best of all the plantation visits. We spent four hours seeing all the different buildings. There is a restaurant on the grounds that serves very good food, and Mint Juleps too. I highly recommend this trip.

This was a very interesting tour and offered a lot of insight into the way of plantation life. The grounds are very impressive, especially the Oak Alley leading up to the front door.

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