Really interesting original 19 th C cotton gin. Shown around by owners wife. Original slave huts. Even had a sing along of Slavs songs with old guy. They'd left some cotton plants in after harvesting to see in field. Then drive through of working modern cotton machinery in action. Highly recommended.

This is an interesting look into the past. For those of us who come from countries where cotton is not grown, this visit gave us a good insight into the history of the cotton plantations and a look at the crop itself. It was harvesting time and the bushes were full of cotton waiting for harvest.

Great guided tour of working cotton plantation. The two ladies that conducted this tour were well versed in the history giving you a genuine feeling of how it was back in the 19th century. Many interesting artifacts. We visited when the weather was nice. I suggest others should do also.

Frogmore is one of the few museums providing a detailed view of plantation life and the operation of the 'cotton kingdom' during the first half of the nineteenth century. The physical exhibits are first class and the guides extremely well-informed. The entry cost is low and worth every penny.

Really interesting insight into the life of a plantation during the pre Civil War period. Buildings and implements plus we were lucky to arrive during the cotton harvest time. What really brought it to life however was the enthusiasm and knowledge of the two tour guides, Rhonda and Lynn, who were exceptional - thank you ladies.

Learning more about the history was integral to our road trip. It was very useful when we went on to Vicksburg. The tour itself was informative and very well presented. The guides were fun and knowledgeable. Not to be missed!

The tour of this gem is a personal favorite of my travels. I bring large groups to Natchez and we always begin our tour at Frogmore Plantation & Gin. This gives everybody a clear understanding of exactly what built the empire that Natchez became in the antebellum period. I have always received absolutely nothing but five star reviews on Frogmore... More
