I didn't know Audubon had worked at the Oakley Plantation until touring the museum. He drew 32 of his original bird sketches while working there as a tutor. The museum is small but informative. We walked the grounds ourselves for $5 each. Set aside about...More

This was an interesting site to visit. I had been here many years before and was interested to return. Unfortunately the main attraction, Oakley, was undergoing renovation and could not be toured. But the film at the center was very well done and the reproductions...More

When touring St. Francisville you must stop in and take a tour of the Oakley Plantation. It is not too far from downtown St. Francisville and well worth your time. You can learn a little about Audubon's time in St. Francisville.

This historic site is focused on the time Audubon stayed at the plantation. It is very informative with a different focus than most plantation tours. Has many nice Audubon prints on display

This was an interesting historical location with some stories pertaining to Audubon, the artist. The location has been kept, as much as possible, as it would have been when he was there for 3 months. It is an educational place to visit.
