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.

Informative short, 30 minute tour of home with details about the home and past owners. Great refreshments available at the end of the tour. Grounds are magnificent. Worth the drive from NOLA.

Absolutely beautiful grounds and big house. Touring the slave quarters was a very sobering experience. The display about sugar production was interesting. I would recommend anyone to allow about 2 hours to see everything.

Oak Alley does a good job of explaining all aspects of plantation life. The employees seem to truly care about the visitors' experiences and want to offer information that will enhance the trip. The café is a great asset as well.
