  • We visited the Whitney with our family (including kids 9-15) during a week's vacation in New Orleans after reading about its opening in the New York Times over a year ago. All were fascinated, but the...  read more »
  • This tour was simply disappointing. The Whitney Plantation have very limited exhibits. The exhibits included one church ( not original to the plantation), a house, one cabin and names written on a wal...  read more »

  • This tour was an experience that I will take to my grave. I have been to a lot of places of American historical significance, but this is the most memorable. The tour guides were well informed and it is So important to every Americans history. It is a must visit.
  • Wow. Amazing, not to be missed. Gives a great insight into slavery. Moving memorials to those who lived and died as slaves. Let our history not be forgotten - - plantations were not about gentile white owners going to dances...
  • This was easily the best thing I did on my trip to Louisiana and a must for anyone looking for a quick road trip from New Orleans. We don't talk as a country enough about the legacy of slavery, as evidenced by the fact that the only museum to focus on this institution has only existed since December 2014. Its definitely an experience I'll remember for the rest of my life.
  • Great tour of a slave plantation and piece of American history . The guide was very knowledgeable and I enjoyed learning from the mistakes of this country's past. God bless President Abraham Lincoln for putting an end to slavery.
  • Not impressed. Plantation house is small without any original furniture and decorations. Most of the building have been moved to the sight to try and create a working plantation. The memorials are not that nice and For the same price go down the road to the evergreen plantation where they filmed Django Unchained.
