Adults are $10.00 and it's worth it. The tour guide was very informative and the rooms were lovely. You can see where the slaves lived and worked as well as the family. Saw the laundry room, kitchen, etc. The grounds are gorgeous. 2 thumbs up!

One of the 4 Antebellum mansions that my wife and I visited and found them unique in their own right. Great personal tours at all these great homes. Would suggest that one buys a discounted multi-mansion tour ticket at the Visitors center.
