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.

The gorgeous old plantation with famous oak lined entrance seen in many movies and TV shows. We drove out ourselves rather than taking a tour, and were glad we did. We got to walk around with a small group, and had more chances for great...More

This is the quintessential southern plantation. The "oak alley" leading up the path to the house truly takes your breath away. Walking among them takes you back in time. The house has been well preserved to where you can truly see how one lived in...More

So much to see & the oak lined lane up to the house makes for a picture perfect plantation home from both inside & outside the home. Lots of little facts & the guides were great!

No trip to The Big Easy is complete without a trip to a Southern slave plantation. Although the history is laced with some sadness and injustice, the 'Big House' and its architecture is worth seeing.

Seeing the three hundred year old live oak trees, alone, is worth the trip to the plantation. Seeing the difference between how the owners lived and their slaves lived is something everyone should experience. These will be lasting memories for me, even after I have...More
