  • If you have access to a car while in New Orleans (or if you’re local) this is well worth a visit. It’s the only plantation “museum” that’s exclusively focused on slavery. The audio guide is really well done too. You can either bring your own headphones and download an app to listen to the guide or you can borrow one of their sets and headphones. Very powerful and important history lesson.
  • The Whitney Plantation is doing a wonderful job of preserving history and presenting it to us. The staff inside of the main building/store were very friendly and helpful. I absolutely enjoyed that the tour is self guided. I could wander around at my own pace and replay pieces of information that stuck out to me. The grounds and bathrooms are clean and well kept. I appreciate the experience and would encourage others to visit.
