Excellent! My husband and I experienced personal accounts of those who lived through the atrocity of slavery. We left with a heightened appreciation of the intelligence, ingenuity and rebellious spirit of the ancestors. Make sure you download the Whitney Plantation free app prior to arrival. It will provide you access to an excellent audio guided tour.

I have been to various plantations and most are from the perspective of the slave owner. This plantation was from the perspective of the slave. I highly recommend listening to the free audio tour that you can download to your phone. It was very interesting and compelling. I think it would have been 5 stars if we were able to see the inside of more buildings. Half of the tour was walking around the grounds and looking at the outside of the buildings. The other half was art and memorials to the slaves.

With COVID going on there are no guided tours going on. I still had a great time, it was a very educational experience.
