  • This is our 2nd trip to The Whitney Plantation. This time we had family members with us. We told them that this was a must do while in New Orleans. It is about a one hour drive from New Orleans. Belie...  more »

  • This was a very eye-opening, educational, and reaffirming experience. Every American of every race should visit. The only aspect that we felt could have been covered a little more is the faith of the slaves outside of forced Catholicism. If Ali is an example of their tour guide you won't be disappointed.
  • What an amazing experience. Our tour guide Ali was just fantastic and incredibly informative. A must see in the New Orleans area. Highly recommended for school age children.
  • So much history. The experience was amazing and our tour guide was friendly and great. Will walk out with so much more knowledge about this place
  • This is a fantastic experience and a very personal glimpse into the slave trade. The tour is less about the workings of a plantation but more about slave life and how plantations functioned based on slave labor. I found the tour moving as it acknowledged and personalized the lives of slaves (what did not happen on a plantation). It provided a balanced view of the importance of human life and the responsibility we each have to respect each other.
  • A phenomenal presentation of a difficult time in American History. The tour really explores a unique avenue of the larger story of slavery by visiting the story of slavery from the perspective of a small plantation in Louisiana. It brings you there and makes an experience that doesn't seem real or tangible very palpable. It is a bit of a drive from New Orleans for a 90 minute experience. The content must genuinely interest you for you to enjoy what the museum has to offer.
